The purpose of this study is to determine the pain beliefs of Akdeniz University Vocational School of Health Services (AUVSHS) students. Fifty Physiotherapy Assistants students, 54 Paramedic students and 37 Elderly Care students who take pain education in their curriculum and 50 Child Development and Care students who do not take pain education were included in this study. The pain beliefs of the students were evaluated with Pain Beliefs Questionnaire. There was no statistically significant difference between organic (OBS) and psychological pain belief scores (PBS) of programs with and without pain education (p>0,05). There was statistically significant difference between OBS and PBS in favor of PBS in all programs (p<0,05). In conclusion, it was determined that pain beliefs in AUVSHS were similar in all programs. It is important to balance between organic and psychological pain beliefs. So we plan to develop new training strategies to balance student’s pain beliefs.
Key words: Pain / organic pain beliefs / psycholological pain beliefs / students
