Question of the Day

What is the SOAPP-R? How is this risk tool structured?

The SOAPP-R (Screener and Opioid Assessment for Patients in Pain – Revised) is a validated, 24-question survey used to predict possible opioid abuse in chronic pain patients. It requires less than ten minutes to complete and is available free of charge to the clinician. Questions in this survey relate to patient affect (e.g. “How often do you have mood swings?”) and a history of substance abuse (e.g. “How often have you attended an AA or NA meeting?”). -- Authored by R.
