The Survey of Pain Attitudes (SOPA) assess attitudes and beliefs about pain that play a key role in adjustment and treatment. It helps you helps you understand the pain-related beliefs of your chronic pain patients.
Patients are asked to indicate their level of agreement with 57 statements using a 5-point Likert scale.
The SOPA consists of seven scales that are divided into two domains: Adaptive Beliefs scales consist of Control and Emotion; the Maladaptive Beliefs scales consist of Disability, Harm, Medication, Solicitude, and Medical Cure.
The SOPA can be used in a variety of testing situations, including pre-treatment screening to determine treatment necessity, pre-treatment and posttreatment to determine treatment effectiveness, and periodic re-evaluations to document treatment progress.
