The Impact of Chronic Pain on Inpatient Pain Services (CHIPS)
A National audit of referrals to acute / inpatient pain services for the management of chronic pain. The aim of this multi-centre audit is to identify the numbers of referrals to APS for management of patients admitted with chronic pain and measure service provision again best practice standards and recommendation.
The chronic pain impact audit requires accurate data collection over a two-month period to obtain as complete a picture as possible of the resources used by inpatients with exacerbations of chronic pain. The date of starting the survey is up to you, but once started, consecutive prospective data should be collected for 8 weeks. It can be any 8 week period.
Data collection can be carried out on paper at the patient’s bedside and transferred to your individual spreadsheet at a later date. Each trust involved in the audit has its own spreadsheet and data collection forms as each patient has a unique code number to allow for anonymous data collection. Example of data collection form. Outcome of the audit and performance of IPS will be available for Trusts to use as a benchmarking tool.
