Webinar description: This webinar will discuss the rationale for moving away from establishing and evaluating a pain treatment on the basis of a numeric rating scale value to one that takes into account pain tolerability and the impact its treatment has on functioning. Validation of the Functional Pain Scale, its acceptability to patients and professionals, and next steps to change the conversation about pain will be explored.

Educational Objectives:

  • Describe how methods of assessing / reassessing may contribute to the safety and efficacy of a pain treatment plan.
  • Explain the validity and reliability of the Functional Pain Scale as developed and limitations if used in different populations or settings.
  • Determine the next steps needed to advance related research, training, and clinical practice.
