Initial development of a patient-reported instrument assessing harm, efficacy, and misuse of long-term opioid therapy

William C. Becker, MD, et al.

We identified a need for a comprehensive, feasible, and clinically actionable instrument to monitor long-term opioid therapy in primary care, where most opioids are prescribed. The present study describes the initial development steps of a preliminary version of such an instrument, the Patient Reported Indications for Opioid Reassessment (PRIOR). Forty- seven subject matter experts in the clinical field of long-term opioid therapy highly rated 37 items related to harm, efficacy, and misuse. These items were modified and tested for Veteran comprehension in this study developing the preliminary PRIOR.
