On a scale of 0 to 10, how intense is your pain?

You will be often asked this question so we can adjust your treatment. We will assess your pain systematically and repeatedly – just like we take your temperature and measure your blood pressure. You can tell us how much it hurts on a scale of 0 to 10.

How can you help the nursing staff to relieve your pain?

By telling us what you feel, you are helping us tailor your care to you. This information is then written in your file. It ensures that the various professionals involved are more aware of how you are doing.

Other tools, such as appropriate observation checklists, are available to assess young children, those in a coma or those with serious impediments to communication.
