Pediatric pain assessment: validation of a multidimensional tool.


Prior to introducing a locally developed pediatric pain assessment tool into the ward setting, testing was done to establish its content and construct validity. Results indicated that the PMHPAT is a valid measure of pain for children between 7 and 14 years old with two limitations: (a) it is unsuitable for assessing spasmodic pain, and (b) some children are unable to distinguish between "hurting" and "feeling."
