Inadequate pain assessment is a significant problem and a key barrier to appropriate pain management. This project evaluates the feasibility, effectiveness, and impact of using the PEG scale, a 3-item pain assessment tool in place of the unidimensional Numeric Rating Scale to assess chronic pain in a primary care setting. A multidimensional pain assessment tool that evaluates not only the severity of pain, but also the impact of pain on quality and functioning could improve patient care and pain management.
