SPIN - the Scale of Pain INtensity (SPIN)

Scale of Pain Intensity (SPIN)

The purpose of the SPIN Screen is:

  1. To screen for and document any pain symptoms in patients admitted to the unit
  2. To use the SPIN to describe their general level of pain
  3. To identify the appropriate measure to record pain symptoms serially.

Numbered Graphic Rating Scale (NGRS)

The NGRS is displayed on a laminated card on the opposie side of the SPIN page. It measures 10 cm, with numbered increments every 1 cm. Score range 0-10. Score range 0-5 (a multiplier of 2 may be applied to the DISCs data to make it compatible with NGRS data).
