dc.descriptionThe Psychosocial Adjustment to Illness Scale (PAIS) is a 46-item, multiple domain semistructured interview, designed to assess the quality of a patient's psychosocial adjustment to a current medical illness or the sequal of a previous illness. The PAIS interview typically requires 20 to 25 minutes to complete. The PAIS and PAIS-SR measure psychosocial adjustment to illness in terms of 7 primary domains of adjustment: Health Care Orientation; Vocational Environment; Domestic Environment; Sexual Relationships; Extended Family Relationships; Social Environment; and Psychological Distress. Each PAIS item is rated on a 4-point (0 thru 3) scale of adjustment, with higher ratings indicating poorer adjustment status.en_US
