Coming to TSWF AIM forms in January 2019
Defense and Veterans Pain Rating Scale (DVPRS)
Starting 8 January 2019, documentation fields for DVPRS will be added to appropriate TSWF forms. DVPRS uses a 0-10 scale for reporting pain intensity with the distinction that each reported pain level is associated with a specific definition. In addition, 4 supplemental questions assess the functional impact of pain. Proper implementation requires use of a printed copy of the DVPRS instruction sheet, as reproduced below. If DVPRS is new to you, please peruse the training slides.
