start of 1:1-Block public summary

Brief Summary in Lay Language

In this prospective study, patients suffering from chronic pain treated at a large German interdisciplinary pain center were studied over a period of 2 months at the beginning of the pandemic. Data from patient charts and questionnaires were evaluated. Patients were asked about postponements or cancellations of pain therapy, the possible effect on pain levels, depression, anxiety and stress and the impact of intensified hygiene measures. Results were compared to those from standardized and validated questionnaires from the same patients (German version of the depression, anxiety and stress scale = DASS) at time of the first contact in the pain clinic.
