Using pain quality assessment measures for selecting analgesic agents



Using pain quality assessment measures for selecting analgesic agents



Clinical Journal of Pain 22(1 Suppl): S9-13



Although those in the field of pain management have long recognized the multidimensional character of pain, global pain intensity remains the most frequently assessed domain measured in clinical trials of pain treatments. However, a number of specific pain qualities have been shown to be associated with neuropathic versus nociceptive pain and, as such, can be used for diagnostic purposes. In addition, preliminary evidence suggests that pain quality measures may be helpful for measuring outcomes in clinical trials. A number of such measures are currently available, each with its strengths and weaknesses. These measures are reviewed, and potential future uses of these tools are discussed.
