Protocol - Pain Intensity - Adolescent and Adult

Add to My Toolkit
Description

This protocol consists of a single self-administered question from the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) Numeric Rating Scale v.1.0 assessing acute and chronic pain intensity during the past 7 days. The item is measured on an 11-point scale. This protocol was validated in individuals aged 18 years and older.

Specific Instructions

This question about pain intensity from Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) are also included in the Quality of Life - Adult measure. Therefore, selecting these two protocols together will result in selecting the same questions multiple times.

The Sickle Cell Disease Pain Working Group notes that numeric rating scales (NRS) can be used for children as young as 8 years. For studies that include older children and a mix of children and adults, the NRS might be preferable to provide continuity.

The PhenX Working Group recommends this PROMIS® protocol.

Selection Rationale

The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) pain intensity scales have been tested and have been found to be reliable and comparable to established measures of the same content areas. They have standardized scoring and are quick and easy to administer via either paper and pencil or as a computer-based instrument. Additionally, they may be adapted to chronic patient populations.
