  Purpose

The purpose of this project is to develop and evaluate the effects of a computer-tailored intervention targeting pain barriers and catastrophizing in adults having cardiac surgery.

The hypotheses are that in the experimental group, in comparison to the control group, participants will show lower levels of pain, less pain interference in their activities, less attitudinal barriers, and less pain catastrophizing.

A pilot-RCT is privileged to assess the preliminary effects of the intervention on the following outcomes: pain intensity, analgesic consumption, pain interference, barriers and pain catastrophizing.

Intervention Details:
    Behavioral: soulageTAVIE
    VITaPaCS consists in a 30 minute-computer-tailored preoperative session, which is animated by a virtual nurse who guides the participant through a learning process about analgesic medication intake, pain communication, and cognitive restructuring. The information and the strategies provided are specifically tailored to the participants' profile, determined by a screening questionnaire, but also by their responses in real-time during the computer session. Two postoperative clinical reinforcements of ten minutes are also provided by the treating nurse based on the flags identified through the preoperative session.
