Project Group Pain Questionnaire


There are many different pain inventories and instruments available and used. The Pain Questionnaire Project Group was founded to provide members of the Society but also general practitioners a short and comprehensive pain questionnaire. This questionnaire should serve to better understand pain and its complexity and be an entrance into optimal diagnostics and treatment strategies. All in all, this should result in a better recognition and care of patients with chronic pain. Quality management and scientific evaluations are further aspects.

The elaborated pain questionnaire is now in the practice test. The first experiences will be discussed in autumn 2020. For improvement, you will find questions about the comprehensibility of the questionnaire here.
