CHANGE PAIN® Scale

 


Based on the Individual Treatment Target1 the CHANGE PAIN Advisory Panel has adapted a new user-friendly tool helping to improve patient-physician communication by identifying key elements of treatment success and expectations of the patient.

 

The present pain level is assessed on a 11-point numerical rating scale (NRS) and related to the individual treatment goal in terms of pain severity. In addition, the impact of pain on everyday living with regard to quality of life aspects is evaluated. This helps physicians and patients to agree on the need for improvement to set realistic expectations and individual treatment targets.
