- Field: Psychology
As soon as you can this week, begin writing a pain diary. The diary should extend for this week (for this assignment), but you may continue on with the pain diary and revisit it in your Signature Assignment. During this week, though, it’s presumed you will experience some type of pain. As part of your pain diary, please rate the intensity of your pain on a 10-point scale. Please also take either one of the two pain questionnaires:
The McGill Pain Questionnaire – accessed at – http://www.npcrc.org/files/news/mcgill_pain_inventory.pdf OR use a Visual Analog Pain Scale – accessed at – http://www.physio-pedia.com/Visual_Analogue_Scale
Write a brief discussion post reflecting on some points in your diary and share your thoughts on the questionnaire and the scale.
Length: 500 words
Your response should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
