Discharge Planning Toolbox for Pain

PAMI (Pain Assessment and Management Initiative) is introducing a new resource to help nurses and physicians treat patients who present with pain. As part of a comprehensive program, the Discharge Planning Toolkit for Pain provides a much needed Discharge Algorithm for Pain Related Complaints. This algorithm assists providers in determining if the patient is safe for discharge; considerations for opioid addiction risk, OTC treatment options, and bowel regimens. The toolkit also provides educational handouts– which you can adapt for your own needs– on how certain factors from smoking to poor sleep can affect pain. Finally, patients can review a helpful video explaining a pain analogy from the American Chronic Pain Association called “A Car with Four Flat Tires”. If you have any feedback about our Discharge Planning Toolkit for Pain, please send us an email at

Educational Handouts can be accessed through the PAMI website or directly at:
