Abstract

In this issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Pain, Walton and coworkers [1] examine the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) a ubiquitously used generic comprehensive pain scale. The BPI has been included in 1760 items on the PubMed, retrieved by the single search term “Brief Pain Inventory” (April 16, 2016).The BPI was introduced 1989 [2], and though, originally developed for cancer pain [3], due to its psychometric consistency, it has also been successfully validated in chronic non-cancer pain [4] (the interested reader may refer to an E-bibliographic tour deforce by one of the principal architects of the BPI [5]). BPI has been used as an outcome measure, particularly concerning the impact of pain on functioning (interference), in a large number of pharmacological and psychological intervention studies and thus BPI is one of the research measures recommended by the Initiative on Methods, Measurement, and Pain Assessment in Clinical Trials (IMMPACT [4]).1 Pain interference with seven or ten itemsIn the article [1], a companion paper to a recently published Rasch analysis [6, 7], the authors state that “[the BPI’s] simplicity and broad applicability has led to translation into several languages and application across a variety of conditions.” The BPI is a self-administered
