About Our Book

Reading and talking about the boy in our scale stories.

Reduce Family Stress

Every family who read our book together reported less stress dealing with the next pain event.

This one of a kind book was created by three Moms for people who need pain management but are:  too young, too memory challenged, confused by emojis, or whelmed by being asked to rate their pain on a 10 level scale.

It is offered in print and as a kindle or ePub download.  Put it on your iPad through iTunes  so you are always ready to get the right help for pain.  It’s  just 4.3 Mb at $2.99.

Save your healthcare dollars.

Families using My Pain Alert(TM) Scale have saved time and effort getting a child or family limited communicator’s pain under control.  Little children were able to  direct their parents, so the best action could be done immediately.  Older children came out of surgery  requesting the exact pain management they needed, resulting in a shorter than previous hospital stay. 

Product Features

Easy to Use

For most users:  Start reading the My Pain Alert(TM) Stories which describe each pain level.  Get even more practice with the scale by learning sign language for each level name.  

Supported by Research

Our field trial of 10 families experiencing repeat hospitalizations, and 5 families experiencing ordinary health needs all reported less stress with pain events after reading MPA together.

Less Caregiver Stress

Medical personnel depend on family and caregivers when someone can’t tell their level of pain.  Practice with this book  puts parent and child on the same page.  Our scale words are quickly understood by patients and doctors.

FAQs

Are there other tools for parents to teach their child how to manage pain?

 No.  We took on this creative challenge  because it was going to be years before our little guy had the working memory and experience base to use a typical pain scale to get his needs met.


Can I buy it in a store?

Not yet.  We would like our purse size revision and disposable toys to be available in hospital gift shops, but need a guaranteed distribution agreement to make production feasible.  You can order it through most bookstores.
