Over the past two weeks has pain been bad enough to interfere with your day to day activities?
Over the past two weeks have you felt worried or low in mood because of this pain?
These two questions were created by the Faculty of Pain Medicine as an early pre-screening and management tool to reduce the burden of pain. The aim was to develop consensus around the use of a brief tool that is extremely quick to use and can help with decisions about whether further screening, assessment and early management (including possible referrals) is necessary. To explain this further, please see the stakeholder document here.
