PPP - for use by family carers
The Paediatric Pain Profile (PPP) 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. This licence covers use of PPP by family carers.
The licence offered on this page allows for personal use of PPP by family and friends but excludes use by professional carers. To use the PPP tool in a professional caring capacity, please access from the following page:
The PPP tool is available for download as a PDF document. If you wish to download the tool, please read our Terms & Conditions by selecting 'View Terms' on the left-hand side of this screen before proceeding.
