About The Pain Outcomes Profile
The Pain Outcomes Profile (POP) is a 23-item questionnaire that utilizes 11-point (0 to 10) Numerical Rating Scales to assess a number of relevant dimensions in the pain patient’s experience. The POP was developed by the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (AIPM) and Drs. Michael Clark and Ron Gironda at the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, Florida. The POP assesses three domains of a patient’s pain experience: pain perception, perceived physical impairment due to pain, and several aspects of emotional functioning. These domains are assessed using two pain intensity scales, three self-report of functional impairment scales and two scales that address self-reported emotional functioning (seven scales total). The POP contains Numerical Rating Scales to assess the patient’s experience of pain intensity right now, and pain on the average during the past week.
