The impact of pediatric chronic pain on the family

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Chronic pain is a significant problem for many children and adolescents. One large study found that 25% of children and adolescents report recurrent or continuous pain for more than three months, while 8% report intense, disabling
chronic pain (Perquin et al., 2000). Pediatric chronic pain influences the whole family, and family factors reciprocally affect the child in pain. While the relationship between pain and family factors is bi-directional, in this commentary I will address only the impact of chronic pain upon the family, its members, and affected domains of functioning.
