Tools that help predict and monitor patient response to opioid medications. The traditional SOAPP and COMM are available to use in a paper format for research studies and educational projects.
The Screener and Opioid Assessment for Patients with Pain (SOAPP) is a 24-item paper and pencil tool to facilitate assessment and planning for chronic pain patients being considered for opioid treatment. It is a validated screener used to identify patients with pain who are at risk for problematic opioid-related behaviors. A new evidenced-based, 8-item version of SOAPP is available in an electronic format through PainCAS™.
The paper version of the Current Opioid Misuse Measure (COMM) is a self-report screener that helps clinicians identify whether a patient currently on long-term opioid therapy may be engaging in aberrant opioid-related behavior. In contrast, the Screener and Opioid Assessment for Patients with Pain (SOAPP) is intended to predict which patients being considered for long-term opioid therapy may exhibit aberrant medications behaviors in the future. Since the COMM examines current misuse, it is ideal for helping clinicians monitor patients’ risk of aberrant medication-related behaviors over the course of treatment. A new evidenced-based, 9-item version of COMM is available in an electronic format through PainCAS™.
