Description

Summary

Aim 1: To conduct a formative evaluation of museum-based programming to address loneliness and social isolation. Aim 2: To develop a consensus-derived Model Museum-Based Program (MMBP) to address loneliness among individuals with chronic pain. Aim 3: To evaluate the feasibility of museum experiences to reduce loneliness and pain among isolated individuals with chronic pain. Due to safety concerns related to the covid pandemic in-person museum programming could not continue and virtual versions of the interventions were created. We will publish results on both the in-person and virtual versions of the intervention as well as a pooled analysis.
