(AHRQ#6K12HS022990-05, IRB#170653) is a study geared toward creating psychosocial self-management interventions for bladder pain disorders with the assistance of the patient population. This study involves taking information gathered from focus groups and tailoring a patient-centered psychosocial intervention protocol, which will be piloted in patients with IC/BPS in the department of urologic surgery as a part of their treatment.

Study Update: In the fall of 2019, we will start recruiting for the next phase of this project, involving an intervention designed specifically for IC/BPS.  If you are interested in participating please email research.ocim@vanderbilt.edu for more information.
