Coping Expectancies and Disability across the New ICD-11 Chronic Pain Categories: A Large-Scale Registry Study.


Recently a new classification system for chronic pain was included in the 11 edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). This study aims to investigate how expectancies of coping, i.e. pain catastrophizing and general self-efficacy, are associated with ICD-11 chronic pain categories in a large pain clinic population. Further, we investigate how coping expectancies are associated with pain-related disability, cross-sectionally and longitudinally across the novel pain classifications.
