To help UPMC Pain Medicine staff understand how you experience pain throughout your treatment, before every appointment, we ask you to complete a Collaborative Health Outcomes Information Registry (CHOIR) pain assessment. You can complete this online assessment at home or request a tablet from the clinic’s front desk and fill it out before your appointment. The assessment asks about your pain, your health, and your daily life. You will fill out the pain assessment before each appointment. Your doctor will use the information to help determine which treatments will work best for your pain.
The first time you fill out the CHOIR pain assessment, it will take about 20 minutes to finish. Pain assessments for other appointments have fewer questions and will take about five to 10 minutes to finish.
CHOIR pain assessment survey coming soon. Please check back.
