Pain Perception and Expression: The Influence of Gender, Personal Self-Efficacy, and Lifespan Socialization

Carly Miller et al. Pain Manag Nurs.

Abstract

There are differences between males and females regarding the perception, expression, and tolerance of pain that stems from a variety of social and psychologic influences. Personal self-efficacy and lifespan socialization are two such influences, and they provide new dimensions for nurses to better understand the pain experience. This article will present a review of the literature regarding personal self-efficacy and lifespan socialization and their effects on pain perception and expression among males and females. Finally, nursing implications related to the topic will be discussed.
