SILVA, Anabela Gonçalves; QUEIROS, Alexandra  e  ROCHA, Nelson Pacheco. Generic self-reported and performance based instruments: How to capture pain associated disability. Rev. Port. Sau. Pub. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.2, pp.125-133. ISSN 0870-9025.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rpsp.2016.03.003.

Aims To determine whether generic measures of disability, depression and physical activity are able to differentiate participants with and without pain. Materials and methods 504 adults aged ≥60 years old recruited at 18 primary care centers were assessed for: pain (NRS), disability (WHODAS), performance (SPPB), depressive symptoms (GDS) and physical activity (RAPA). Results 376 (74.6%) participants reported pain; pain sites most commonly reported were: low back (54.6%), knee (50.8%), shoulder (29.5%), hip (27.9%) and neck (24.7%). Pain was associated with increased disability, depression and decreased physical activity. Conclusions Generic instruments were able to capture pain associated changes.
