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?
You can order it through any bookstore. We would like our purse size revision and MPAS+ cards to be available in hospital gift shops. Let your local shop manager know about My Pain Alert.
For most users: Start reading the My Pain Alert Stories which describe each pain level. Get even more practice with the scale by learning sign language for each level name.
Buy a MPAS+ card set to practice with and share with your medical provider. The pain scale you use is your choice.
