Opioid Risk Management
Access important tools that help predict and monitor patient response to opioid medications.
Enhance productivity and standardize the pain management process in your practice with the new PainCAS, a suite of clinical tools for assessing pain and opioid risk in chronic pain patients. PainCAS helps healthcare professionals better manage their patients’ chronic pain through standardized pain and risk assessments and automatically generated clinician and patient reports. It includes electronic versions of the newly redesigned SOAPP-8 and COMM-9, which have demonstrated nearly identical levels of predictive validity as the full length instruments. Learn More
About the SOAPP®
The Screener and Opioid Assessment for Patients in Pain (SOAPP®) is a brief self-report paper and pencil tool to facilitate assessment and planning for chronic pain patients being considered for long-term opioid treatment. It includes 24 questions that are scored by hand.
About the COMM®
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.
