Pain catastrophizing and pain acceptance are psychological factors that have been shown to be associated with pain-related outcomes and predict multidisciplinary pain treatment outcomes. However, they are rarely examined in the same study. This study aimed to: (a) assess the independent roles of pain catastrophizing and pain acceptance as predictors of pain intensity, pain interference, and depression; and (b) evaluate the potential moderating role of pain acceptance on the association between pain catastrophizing and both pain and function.
