Healthcare Organization Licensing

Thank you for your interest in licensing the use of the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale.

Please help us maintain the integrity of the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale by following these simple guidelines:

  • Remember, our scale is used for pain assessment, only.  We do not give permission for use in measuring emotions, moods, comfort, etc. This is essential for our scale’s validity.
  • Ours is a self-assessment scale, so the patient needs to be able to understand the instructions and select a face that illustrates the pain they are experiencing.  It should never be used with unresponsive patients or to compare the patient’s face to the scale to determine the level of pain.
  • No modifications should be made to this scale without our expressed permission.  We are intentional about not adding color to our scale, because color is so subjective.  If you see a scale with color added, that is a copyright infringement.

Complete and submit the web form, below, to receive a quote for the licensing fee for your organization.

As soon as we review your submission, we will email you a quote. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss this further. You are welcome to contact us at info@WongBakerFACES.org or call 405-608-8083.

Please scroll down to the bottom of this web form to be sure you have a submit button. If you do not see one, try a different browser, email or call the foundation using the contact information above.

You should receive an automatic email response to your web form submission and an opportunity to confirm your email address.  If you do not receive communication, chances are it has been delivered to your junk file or trash or perhaps not delivered at all.  Please email us, if that is the case and we will send your information another way.
