Abstract

The aim of the study was to develop new understanding of the lived experience of relationships for rural people living with chronic pain. Rural residents have greater difficulty accessing health services and providers. This is especially important to those living with chronic pain who often find themselves isolated from professionals who could potentially offer support.
