Jeannine Brant discusses factors that can influence a patient's perception of malignant pain.

Jeannine Brant, PhD, APRN-CNS, AOCN, Billings Clinic, discusses different factors in a patient's life that can influence the perception of pain.

The emotional and psychological wellbeing of a patient can determine their perception of pain. If there are adverse childhood events, they could lead to a lack of coping strategies. Additionally, spirituality can have an impact on pain, either helping to manage it or worsening it if a patient believes their pain is punishment. Cultural beliefs can also influence pain management.
