Measurement properties and feasibility of chronic pain assessment tools for use with children and young people with cerebral palsy.


Smith NL, Gibson N, Bear N, Thornton AL, Imms C, Smith MG, Harvey AR


Chronic pain assessment tools exist for children, but may not be valid, reliable, and feasible for populations with functional, cognitive or communication limitations, for example, cerebral palsy (CP). This study aimed to (i) identify chronic pain assessment tools used with children and young people and rate their measurement properties; (ii) develop a CP specific feasibility rating tool to assess the feasibility of tools in CP; and (iii) categorise tools according to reporting method.
