In collaboration with investigators at Oregon Health Science Center, we developed the Parent Risk and Impact Screening Measure (PRISM). PRISM is a brief screening tool for parents of children and adolescents with chronic pain. This measure assesses parents’ reports of their stress, health, psychosocial functioning, and disruption in activities due to their child’s pain and related disability. With the help of an expert panel, the 30-item PRISM was generated. However, it is our goal to reduce this measure to 15 items or less to make an efficient screening tool for a busy clinical setting. Validation of the PRISM could potentially result in better screening of important parent distress and behavior variables that ultimately influence child outcomes.
