Prevalence and risk factors for pain-specific school absenteeism in adolescents with recurrent pain: A prospective population-based design.


Adolescents with recurrent pain miss out from school more often than pain-free peers. Research has so far used cross-sectional designs, focusing on non-specific absenteeism in clinical samples. Hence, it is unknown whether estimates of absenteeism are specifically linked to the pain itself or reflects the characteristics of clinical samples. This study aimed to prospectively explore pain-related school absenteeism in a non-clinical sample, its variance and potential risk factors.
