Chronic pain is a complex medical condition that impacts adults' ability to independently engage in meaningful occupations, such as activities of daily living (ADLs), therefore resulting in an overall decrease in quality of life and feelings of disempowerment

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will:
- Define the pressing limitations to occupational performance in activities of daily living for adults with chronic pain
- Describe interventions within the scope of occupational therapy for adults with chronic pain
- Discuss how the evidence based interventions can be used in clinical practice to increase participation in activities of daily living for adults with chronic pain
