The Paediatric Pain Profile

The Paediatric Pain Profile (PPP) is a behaviour rating scale for assessing pain in children with severe physical and learning impairments. Severe physical and learning difficulties/impairments are a feature of many chronic and disabling conditions in children. These children have many potential sources of pain. Pains may arise from the disability/disease process itself (e.g. neuropathic pain or muscle spasm), be secondary to the disease (e.g. musculo-skeletal pain or pain from reflux oesophagitis) or incidental (e.g. tooth ache or otitis media). However, because the children have difficulty in communicating their pain it can go unrecognised and untreated.
