Abstract [en]

Although reassurance is one of the most frequently recommended procedures for pain, this procedure has a surprisingly thin evidence base. While the implicit model for reassurance is compelling, we conclude that reassurance is a complex process involving an interaction of patient experience, thoughts and beliefs, and emotions in a social context as well as an outcome measured in health behavior. There is a need for a sound theory of reassurance which distinguishes between the outcome process (patient) and reassurance methods (HCP perspective) so that reassurance might be utilized for best results.
