Abstract

Chronic non cancerous pain considerably limits the patients' quality of life. Yet, chronic non cancerous pain has a prevalence as high as 25% to 35%, Therapeutic education allows to work on the knowledge and know-how about the disease, the treatment, the management of health resources and health behaviors. E-learning uses new technologies of communication to improve the quality of learning by facilitating access to the resources and favoring the interactivity. It is attractive by its wide accessibility and its limited logistic needs. The level of proof of its efficacy is weak, mainly because of methodological limitations. Some good quality studies are promising, with a positive effect of e-learning programs on pain intensity, disability, autonomy and medication misuse.
