High PSEQ scores are strongly associated with clinically-significant functional levels and provide a useful gauge for evaluating outcomes in chronic pain patients (Nicholas 2007).
By specifying the nature of the obstacle to be faced (pain), the PSEQ provides more clinically-useful information than simply asking someone about their confidence in performing an activity.
