The theory of unpleasant symptoms helps guide what to look for in an assessment tool for patient symptoms by providing a framework for understanding the subjective experiences of patients with symptoms. This theory views symptoms as unpleasant sensations or experiences that are associated with a disease or condition and are perceived by the patient as disruptive to their normal functioning. To accurately assess patient symptoms, it is important to consider the perspective of the patient and understand the impact of their symptoms on their daily life.
