Introduction The primary objective of this research was to evaluate the psychometric properties of a questionnaire designed to assess perceive injustice associated with injury. Methods In Study 1, the 12-item Injustice Experience Questionnaire (IEQ) was administered to 226 individuals with musculoskeletal conditions. A subsample of 85 individuals were interviewed 1-year later about their ongoing symptoms and return to work status. In Study 2, the IEQ and other pain-related measures were… 

Validation of the Injustice Experiences Questionnaire Adapted for Use with Patients with Severe Osteoarthritis of the Knee

The findings of the present study support the construct validity of the IEQ-chr in the context of osteoarthritis, and suggest that this measure may be useful in psychosocial assessment of individuals at risk for adverse pain outcomes.

Validation of the Injustice Experiences Questionnaire in a heterogeneous trauma sample.

The IEQ shows strong psychometric properties and is suitable for use in a sample of diverse traumatic injury, however, results suggest the use of a one-factor model for the IEQ in this sample.

Psychometric assessment of the Swedish version of the injustice experience questionnaire among patients with chronic pain

The findings support the use of the IEQ-S as an adjunct tool to assess appraisals of injustice in patients with chronic pain who are referred to tertiary care in Sweden.

Test-Retest Reliability and Construct Validity of the Dutch Injustice Experience Questionnaire in Patients with Chronic Pain

The results support the construct validity and test-retest reliability of the Dutch Injustice Experience Questionnaire and suggest that test- retest reliability is good.

A qualitative exploration of perceived injustice among individuals living with spinal cord injury.

Findings suggest that for individuals living with SCI, perceived injustice may be less related to fault and blame but instead more closely related to a lack of understanding of the injury.

Validation of the Injustice Experience Questionnaire (IEQ) in a spinal cord injury population.

This preliminary validation study failed to confirm the two-factor structure of the IEQ in a population of individuals with SCI and to assess IEQ scale reliability and construct validity using the same population.

Psychometric Properties of a Brief Instrument to Assess Perceptions of Injustice Associated with Debilitating Health and Mental Health Conditions

Preliminary analyses suggest that the IEQ-SF is a reliable and valid measure of disability-related injustice perceptions associated with debilitating health and mental health conditions.
