Pain-related fear is a driving force that impedes treatment progress among individuals struggling with chronic pain. The PHODA-Youth is an electronic assessment tool designed to gauge pain-related fear in youth with chronic pain and identify specific treatment targets (e.g., playing a ball sport). The goal of this study is to validate the PHODA-Youth English version in a sample of children and adolescents with chronic pain.
