Metadata[+] Show full item record
The Screener and Opioid Assessment Measure for Patients with Chronic Pain (SOAAP) and the Opioid Risk Tool (ORT) are both validated tools that screen for future problems with prescription opioids. The ORT has been more rigorously studied and is able to identify low-, moderate-, and high-risk populations. (SOR B, based on a single validating cohort study.)
