Chronic pain and its consequences are major global health challenges, and the prevalence is increasing worldwide among adolescents. Early interventions through school health care may be a way to affect this trend. The Help Overcoming Pain Early (HOPE) intervention aims to enable school nurses to offer adolescents strategies to manage their stress and pain. The HOPE programme consists of (i) an educational package for school nurses in the areas person-centred care, stress and pain education/management and gender perspective; and (ii) an intervention package for adolescents with chronic pain. The programme consists of four sessions during which adolescents with chronic pain have person-centred dialogues with a school nurse. The HOPE programme is based on the existing evidence of managing chronic pain and on the assumption that school nurses can support adolescents with chronic pain by using person-centred care.
