We describe pain intensity and interference at baseline and 1 year postinjury in burn, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and spinal cord injury (SCI) survivors and compare them with the general population (GP). We tested a custom Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) pain interference short form developed for use in trauma populations. METHODS We administered a pain intensity numerical rating scale and custom PROMIS pain interference short forms at baseline and/or 1 year postinjury from participants (≥18 years) at three Model System projects (burn, TBI, and SCI).
