Fiche synthèse

1. Objectifs


Intentions :
« The objectives are the following: (1) to examine whether the psychosocial functioning of the child assessed at baseline is associated with pain intensity measured at baseline […] and six months later […], above and beyond disease activity and after controlling for demographic and disease-related variables. (2) to examine whether parental coping assessed at baseline is associated with pain intensity measured at baseline […] and six months later […], above and beyond disease activity and after controlling for demographic and disease-related variables. » (p. 32)

Questions/Hypothèses:
« The hypotheses are the following : (1) the psychosocial functioning of the child assessed at baseline will explain a unique and significant proportion of the variance in pain reported at baseline, above and beyond disease activity and after controlling for demographic and disease-related variables, and this association will be maintained at 6 months. (2) the use of specific parental coping patterns assessed at baseline will explain a unique and significant proportion of the variance in pain reported at baseline, above and beyond disease activity and after controlling for demographic and disease-related variables, and this association will be maintained at 6 months. » (p. 33)

3. Résumé


« Chronic pain in juvenile idiopathic arthritis is poorly understood. Although there is a link between pain and disease activity, pain is also modulated by other factors. The psychosocial functioning of the child is linked to his/her pain experience, however direction of causality is unknown. Furthermore, the potential association between parental coping and children’s pain has never been explored. The objectives were to evaluate relationships between psychosocial functioning of the child, parental coping, and concurrent pain and future pain report at 6 months. […]Psychosocial functioning of the child was identified as a correlate of pain, above and beyond disease activity, in the cross-sectional analysis. However, it did not predict future pain. Use of the parental coping pattern “social support” was associated with less concurrent pain. » (p. 5)
