Adult pain management services use the following questionnaires:
In paediatric pain services the impact of pain is measured for both patients and carers/parents and the questionnaires used depend on the age of the patient. Included below as examples are the questionnaires collected for adolescent patients. Note that the Paediatric Quality of Life Inventory has been removed for copyright reasons.
The ePPOC questionnaires are currently not available in different languages.
Other organisations have translated individual assessment tools that may be of use to services when providing clinical care. The quality of these tools cannot be guaranteed by ePPOC. Services who wish to use the translated tools are strongly encouraged to engage their local translation and interpreter services.
