Primary use / Purpose: 

The measure assesses the impact of chronic pain in adolescence in terms of physical, psychological and social functioning. To gain a more comprehensive understanding of a case of adolescent pain, responses may be taken from both adolescent report and parent report forms, or alternatively the parent form may be used where self-report is not possible.

Background: 

As chronic pain can have widespread negative impacts in an adolescent’s lifestye and development,ath Adolescent Pain Questionnaire – adolescent report (BAPQ) and parent report (BAPQ-P) can be used in both research and clinical settings. The availability of alternate adolescent and parent report forms can be an advantage in many cases.

Psychometrics: 

Reliability and validity of the adolescent-report form is discussed in Eccleston, Jordan, McCracken, Sleed, Connell & Clinch (2005) while
Eccleston, McCracken, Jordan and Sleed (2007) deals with the psychometric properties of the parent-report form.
