Aims: Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary pain managementprograms are widely utilised to treat people with chronic, nonmalignant pain. Numerous studies support the effectiveness of multidisciplinary approaches to chronic pain and, although studies are more limited, interdisciplinary approaches. The purpose of this study was to investigate the longitudinal outcomes of one interdisciplinary program in the areas of depression, anxiety and disability. Three time frames were considered: 1) pre-treatment and post-treatment, 2) pre-treatment and follow-up and 3) posttreatment and follow-up. The study also aimed to compare pretreatment levels of employment with follow-up employment status.
