A Swedish version of the short-form McGill Pain Questionnaire

  [ 30 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • January 3, 1994


A short-form of the McGill Pain Questionnaire (SF-MPQ) has been
translated into Swedish. One hundred women with either
fibromyalgia (FS) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA) filled out the
SF-MPQ three times--the RA patients monthly while receiving
their routine care, and the FS patients over 6 months while
participating in an experimental treatment. Results indicated
that the MPQ 15-item descriptor section was internally
consistent (Cronbach's alphas .73 to .89), but lacked content
validity in the RA sample. Test-retest reliabilities ranged
from .45 to .73. Convergent construct validity was
demonstrated by significant correlations between the SF-MPQ
and other pain measurements. A principal components analysis
showed that the 15-item descriptor section has three distinct
factors: acute sensory, chronic sensory, and affective.
We conclude that the SF-MPQ is reliable and valid for use
with FS patients.
