However, the PSEQ is more strongly associated with perceived work capacity in injured workers with chronic pain than is the SES, which does not incorporate the presence of pain as a context (Gibson and Strong 1996).
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.
