Pain management of adolescents who underwent a spinal fusion is complex. There is very few studies related to the strategies used by teenagers to cope with pain in the rehabilitation phase. The Pain Coping Questionnaire (PCQ) can evaluate these strategies but there is no questionnaire in French for measuring pain coping. Translation and adaptation to French-Canadian of the PCQ may lead adolescents to use more effective and personalize coping strategies, which could enable them to better manage their pain and resume their normal activities more rapidly. We believe that multimodal pain management strategies will help reduce medication for the pain. Became a PICH graduate: August 30, 2013
