Psychometric properties of the Multidimensional Pain Inventory, Dutch language version - fibromyalgia research

  [ 37 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • February 5, 1999


The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychometric
properties of a Dutch translation of the Multidimensional Pain
Inventory, MPI-DLV. Data was available on 733 chronic pain
patients. There were three issues of special interest. The
first one related to the comparability between the MPI-DLV and
the American and German MPI versions with regard to the
psychometric aspects. The second dealt with the construct
validity of the MPI-DLV scale 'general activity'.

It was
predicted that patients with high scores on this scale would
be in better physical condition, as measured on a
working-to-tolerance bicycle ergometer test. In relation to
the third issue, attention was given to the factor-invariance
between fibromyalgia patients and back pain patients. From the
results obtained it was concluded that (1) the factorial
structure of the three MPI parts is replicated and the
reliability estimates and validity indicators are similar to
those from the American and German versions; (2) patients with
high scores on the 'general activity' scale are in better
physical condition and (3) MPI- DLVs of fibromyalgia and back
pain patients do have similar factorial structures. Evidence
was also obtained that the MPI-DLV is sensitive to treatment
changes. Applications of the MPI-DLV are discussed.
