  • MPQ: The patient chooses among 16 groups of descriptive words to characterize the sensory, affective, and evaluative qualities of his pain. Four additional word groups are specific to certain pain conditions. A pain intensity scale, a questionnaire on the use of analgesics and prior pain experience, and a human figure drawing on which the patient indicates his pain location are also included in the MPQ. The disadvantage of the MPQ is that it is not self-administered, and takes up to 20 minutes to complete. MPAC: designed to allow rapid assessment of cancer pain intensity, effectiveness of analgesics, and general psychological distress. It uses three visual analog scales and a set of eight pain intensity descriptors [27]. It may be self-administered and is more appropriate for cancer patients who are too fatigued or sedated to complete the MPQ. It appears to correlate with some of the more complicated instruments, yet it can be administered repeatedly without the evaluator's assistance.
