|ORDER ASSESSMENT TOOLS|
The Zoster BPI is a version of the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) that is designed specifically for use with patients who have or have had herpes zoster.
In response to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance for the pharmaceutical industry on the use of patient-reported outcome measures in medical product development to support labeling claims, we have prepared a BPI User's Guide to provide documentation of the BPI's development and psychometric properties. The information offered therein addresses the recommendations in the FDA guidance and establishes the BPI's adequacy as a measure to support medical product claims.
- Purpose: To assess the severity of pain and the impact of pain on daily functioning
- Population: Patients with pain in the region of their rash from herpes zoster
- Assessment areas: Severity of pain, impact of pain on daily function, location of pain, pain medications and amount of pain relief in the past 24 hours or the past week
- Responsiveness: Responds to both behavioral and pharmacological pain interventions
- Method: Self-report or interview
- Time required: Five minutes (short form), 10 minutes (long form)
- Scoring: No scoring algorithm, but "worst pain" or the arithmetic mean of the four severity items can be used as measures of pain severity; the arithmetic mean of the seven interference items can be used as a measure of pain interference
- Reliability: Cronbach alpha reliability ranges from 0.77 to 0.91
