Abstract

To test the psychometric properties of the Family Impact of Pain Scale (FIPS) using a sample of families resident in North Queensland. Background While pain has a significant effect on the individual, the entire family can be affected when a member of the family has chronic pain. FIPS is the only tool designed to measure the effect of pain on the family. It was originally developed in the UK using a sample of people with dental pain, so to test the psychometric properties of the tool with Australians with chronic pain was essential.
