This paper reports two studies of chronic pain patients (n = 444) relevant to the psychometric properties of the Pain Disability Index (PDI), a self-report instrument that has been used to assess the degree to which chronic pain interferes with various daily activities. [...] Key Result In the first study, patients with high PDI scores reported more psychological distress (P less than 0.001), more severe pain characteristics (P less than 0.001), and more restriction of activities (P less than 0.001) than…Expand
Pain disability index: construct and discriminant validity.

TLDR
Partial correlation controlling for pain intensity demonstrated PDI factor 1 was significantly related to depression, employment status, and medication usage, which supports the usefulness of the PDI in providing important information on functional disability beyond what is provided by a simple measure of pain intensity. Expand
The relationship between self-efficacy and disability in chronic low back pain patients
TLDR
The results support the use of the Back Pain Self-Efficacy Scale (BPSES) as a general measure of self-efficacy in the chronic low back pain population. Expand
A Multidimensional Measure of Pain Interference: Reliability and Validity of the Pain Disability Assessment Scale
TLDR
The findings support a 3 factor structure of the PDAS items, as well as a high level of internal consistency of the scales created from these factors, which may be useful when researchers or clinicians require a multidimensional measure of the effects of pain on a patient's life. Expand
Stage of Chronicity and Cognitive Correlates of Pain-Related Disability
The present research examined the functional relations between the different dimensions of catastrophic thinking and pain-related disability, as a function of stage of chronicity. In the presentExpand
Educational Achievement and Chronic Pain Disability: Mediating Role of Pain-Related Cognitions
TLDR
It is suggested that pain-related cognitions mediate the relation between LOE and pain disability and that persons with lower LOEs are more likely to develop maladaptive pain beliefs and coping strategies. Expand
Examining the Pain Stages of Change Questionnaire in Chronic Pain
TLDR
Findings provide support for the use of the PSOCQ in assessing patients’ readiness to adopt a self-management approach to chronic pain, as measured by the Pain Stages of Change Questionnaire. Expand
Self-Report and Pain Behavior Among Patients With Chronic Pain
TLDR
The results of this study indicate the value of a multimodal, cognitive-behavioral approach to assessing patients with chronic pain and suggest that pain behavior observation is a valid and reliable assessment tool for use with a heterogeneous chronic pain population. Expand
[Assessing disability in chronic pain patients.].
TLDR
A German version of a self-report instrument (Pain Disability Index) that assesses disability in chronic pain patients is presented and the results from four data sets concerning different aspects of reliability and validity confirm the good psychometric properties of the instrument. Expand
Measuring participation in patients with chronic back pain-the 5-Item Pain Disability Index.
TLDR
The results of this study support the construct validity of the 5-Item PDI as a brief measure of participation in people with chronic back pain and are likely most applicable to those with chronicBack pain attending pain clinics and other tertiary centers for care. Expand
Assessment of pain and disability in patients with chronic low back pain: Reliability and construct validity of the Turkish version of the Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale and Pain Disability Index
TLDR
The results are in accordance with the previous findings of the English and French versions of the QBPDS and English version of the PDI, indicating that these functional scales are valid and reliable. Expand

TLDR
The results of two studies concerning the psychometric properties and the validity of the PDI are presented and several methodologic issues are discussed, and suggestions are made for future uses of the instrument. Expand
Preliminary Validity Study of the Pain Disability Index
  • C. Pollard
  • Psychology, Medicine

TLDR
The present investigation assessed whether scores on the index could discriminate between two groups of patients with chronic low back pain designated on the basis of external criteria as either highly or minimally disabled. Expand
The sickness impact profile: a global measure of disability in chronic low back pain
TLDR
The results support the validity of the SIP as a measure of functional status with CLBP patients and the psychosocial dimension was significantly correlated with the emotional distress categories of the MMPI and the physical dimension score was inversely associated with standing/walking and positively correlated with time spent lying down. Expand
Pain measurement and pain behavior
TLDR
The results were interpreted to suggest that, in chronic pain, there may be a questionable relationship between what people say about their pain and what they do, and the evaluation of chronic pain should include analyses of patient behavior. Expand

TLDR
A psychometric analysis of the QOLS showed it to be internally consistent, highly reliable across time, and representative of a single construct. Expand
The West Haven-Yale Multidimensional Pain Inventory (WHYMPI)
TLDR
The West Haven‐Yale Multidimensional Pain Inventory was developed in order to fill a widely recognized void in the assessment of clinical pain and is recommended for use in conjunction with behavioral and psychophysiological assessment strategies in the evaluation of chronic pain patients in clinical settings.

A prospective short-term study of chronic low back pain patients utilizing novel objective functional measurement
TLDR
Results indicate that the physician dealing with chronic low back dysfunction can employ objective measures of functional capacity as an alternative to the sole reliance on pain patient self‐report or structured tests, such as radiographie imaging, which merely document a universal, progressive degenerative process.
