Assessing pain with a new tool
from By Dorothy L. Tengler
Although estimates of the prevalence of chronic pain vary, the number of persons experiencing chronic pain in the U.S. is substantial. According to a new study prepared by the National Institutes of Health, an estimated 11.2 percent of adults experience chronic pain. To address this issue, clinicians and researchers at the University of Washington's Center for Pain Relief found the use of an in-depth questionnaire tremendously helpful. The "Pain Tracker" can be filled out online from any digital device or completed on paper.
