The Paediatric Pain Profile is a pain assessment tool for non-verbal children with severe and complex disability. The tool incorporates a validated 20-item behaviour rating scale with scores ranging from 0 to 60. In early studies, scores of 14 and over have been associated with moderate or worse pain. The tool emphasises the need for partnership between parent and professional in assessing and managing children’s pain.
The PPP tool is available for download as a PDF document. If you wish to download the tool, please choose the appropriate Terms & Conditions for your usage by selecting 'View Terms' for the various licence options displayed on the left hand side of this screen.
