Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study was to explore the concurrent validity between Pain Limitation

List (PLL) and Functional Disability Inventory (FDI), the association between PLL and age

and FDI and age, the difference between gender in PLL and FDI and possible floor or roof

effects in the two tests.

Method: The study was a cross-sectional study and had a descriptive correlational and

comparative design. 86 children with chronic pain participated in the study.

Result: The study showed that PLL had a concurrent validity with FDI (r=-0,740), p<0,001).

There was a weak correlation between FDI and age (r=0,249, p<0,021) but PLL did not have

a correlation with age and there was no difference between gender in PLL or in FDI. Also,

there was no floor or roof effect for the two tests but it seems that PLL is slightly more

sensitive for children and adolescents with less pain-related disability.

Conclusion: according to this study, PLL has a concurrent validity. But to be able to use PLL

as a reliable instrument, more studies who explore reliability and other types of validity is

needed.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet för denna studie var att undersöka samstämmig validitet mellan the Pain

Limitation List (PLL) och the Functional Disability Inventory (FD), samvariationen mellan

ålder och PLL och ålder och FDI, skillnad mellan kön för PLL och FDI samt eventuella takeller

golveffekter för de två testen.

Metod: Studien var en tvärsnittsstudie och hade en beskrivande korrelerande och jämförande

design. 86 barn med långvarig smärta deltog i studien.

Resultat: Studien visade att PLL har en samstämmig validitet med FDI (r= -0,740, p<0,001),

att det var en svag samvariation mellan FDI och ålder (r=0,249, p<0,021), ingen samvariation

mellan PLL och ålder samt att det inte förelåg någon skillnad mellan könen i FDI och i PLL.

Det fanns heller ingen tak- eller golveffekt för de två testen men det verkar som att PLL är

något mer känslig för barn och ungdomar med mindre smärtrelaterad aktivitetsbegränsning.

Konklusion: Enligt denna studie har PLL samstämmig validitet. Men för att kunna använda

PLL som ett pålitligt instrument behöver fler studier undersöka instrumentets reliabilitet och

andra typer av validitet.
