We argue that in all RCTs that investigate treatments for chronic pain emotional distress should be reported. In a majority of cases, pain intensity and pain‐related disability are measured, yet ‐ despite guidelines to the contrary ‐ pain‐related distress is not included. We suggest that the new extension code for chronic pain as incorporated in th...
