The PainDETECT questionnaire is another questionnaire which has been well validated in studies, and has an advantage in that it is solely based on answers that a patient can give for him/herself, with no requirement to be examined at the time of the questionnaire.
This questionnaire has been developed and made available with support from Pfizer. GPs and other health professionals may be able to obtain tear-off pads of the PainDETECT questionnaire from their local Pfizer representatives to use with patients.
