Pain is a multidimensional, subjective phenomenon that can only be understood within the context of an individual operating in a specific environment. As a consequence, it is difficult from an objective standpoint to satisfy the established criteria for classification. In general, it is the case that available classification systems can only partially capture pain in all of its complexity. There are various general and specific classification systems. In 2017, the International Classification of Diseases will be complemented with classification possibilities related to chronic pain. Recently, a committee established by the Dutch Pain Society has formulated a proposal for the development of a definition and classification system for chronic pain to be applied in the Netherlands.
