Healthcare Provider

Thank you for visiting our site.  You have indicated that you are a healthcare provider.  Please read the following information and submit the form below.

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 colors are so subjective.  If you see a scale with color added, that is a copyright infringement.

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, check your junk, trash, or spam files.  Sometimes we have trouble with email deliverability. Please email me at [email protected], if you are unable to find it and I will send your information another way.

I look forward to hearing from you.
