Fear of Pain Questionnaire (FPQ-III) is a self-report measure designed to assess fears about pain across three pain dimensions: severe, minor and medical. The objective of the study was to develop a Polish version of FPQ-III and to examine its psychometric properties. The data were collected among 338 individuals (59% women), aged from 16 to 65. The results confirm that FPQ-III is internally consistent and stable measure of fear of pain and its dimensions. The results of confirmatory factor analysis suggested good fit of the three-factor model. To test the criterion validity, correlation analyses between anxiety, passive coping with pain, self-efficacy, pain intensity and fear of pain were performed. Preliminary results yielded that the Polish version of FPQ-III questionnaire might be a viable and reliable measure.
