Abstract: 

Background and objectives: This study aimed to validate the West Haven-Yale Multidimensional Pain Inventory (WHYMPI) for Iranian patients with chronic pain.
Methods: 585 patients with chronic pain in legs, back, hands, neck and shoulders were entered into this study. The West Haven-Yale Multidimensional Pain Inventory (WHYMPI) was used for assessment of pain in these patients. For validation of this inventory the results were compared with those obtained from Brief Pain Inventory (BPI), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), State Trait Anxiety Questionnaire and Enrich marriage inventory.
Results: Using Cronbach's alpha, validity of the first section of WHYMPI was 0.86, the second section was 0.78, and the third section was 0.75. The Test-retest correlation was 0.95. Also, the correlation of each individual section with the whole inventory was positive and significant.
Conclusion: The results indicate that modified form of the West Haven-Yale Multidimensional Pain Inventory (WHYMPI) can be used in Iran.
