CHANGE PAIN Referral Letter

New tool improves communication between physicians

The Referral letter from CHANGE PAIN helps physicians when referring a pain patient for care to another HCP. The form contains background information, such as the impact of the pain on the patient’s quality of life and functioning, as well as contact data. The core of the referral letter is the brief pain history with a numeric pain rating scale.

Everyone can freely download the CHANGE PAIN Referral letter.

The idea for the new referral letter is based on the concept of defining individual treatment targets, which is recommended by the CHANGE PAIN Advisory Panel. The members of the Advisory Panel created this new user-friendly tool to improve communication between physicians.
