About Pain Audit Tools
Pain Audit Tools (PAT) is developed by the City of Hope Pain & Palliative Care Resource Center. The Pain Audit Tools (PAT) includes three separate surveys used for gathering information on pain management. The first is an 11-item audit form useful for obtaining basic information about the patient. The second is a 17-item, self-report, pain assessment to be filled out by the patient. Finally, the third survey is used for aiding surgical reviews.
Quality palliative care is important in ensuring the wellbeing of those suffering from a terminal illness. One of the primary roles of a palliative caregiver is to be able to make accurate pain assessments. Without sufficient training, nurses will struggle to meet the many tough demands they meet. The Pain Audit Tools (PAT) is therefore useful in maintaining a high standard of care and allowing improvements to be made where necessary. It serves as both an educational tool and a quality assessment tool.
