ZIB-371 Concepten PijnMeetmethode en Toelichting uit nl.nfu.Pijnscore-v1.2 hebben hetzelfde ID.


The pain score is a general measurement for pain experience, not a description of specific, localized pain.

The following are used as an easily reproducible measurement for pain experience:

  1. NRS (Numeric Rating Scale) in which the patient gives the pain a number on a scale of 1 (no pain) to 10 (unbearable pain).
  2. VAS (Visual Analogue Score), in which the patient points to a bar with a line to indicate the pain they feel. The back of the bar has a scale from 0 (no pain) to 10 (unbearable pain) on it.

The results of both scores have the same meaning, but the visual analogue method (VAS) is seen as more reliable than the NRS pain score.


The purpose of the pain score is to quantify and objectify the patient’s subjective pain experience.

Type Id Concept Card. Definition DefinitionCode Reference
Block.png NL-CM:12.9.1 Arrowdown.pngPainScore Root concept of the PainScore building block. This root concept contains all data elements of the PainScore building block.
INT.png NL-CM:12.9.2 Arrowright.pngPainScoreValue 1 The score is a general measurement of pain experience, not a description of specific, localized pain.

Depending on the measuring method used, it indicates the level of pain experienced by the patient on a scale of 0 to 10: 0 = no pain and 10 = the worst pain imaginable. No descriptions are used for the intermediate values, so that the value is displayed as a number and not as a code.

Sometimes a value range of 0-100 is used instead of 0-10.
