About the MSQS

The Medical Stability Quick Screen was developed to provide a brief screen of information relevant to persons suffering from sub-acute and chronic pain and illness. The MSQS can be useful in identifying obstacles for recovery in terms of behavioral, cognitive and psychosocial areas frequently seen in people with pain/illness and suffering. In addition, the MSQS can identify problem areas where more comprehensive assessment might be needed and to assess an individual progress in your treatment. This clinical report is intended to be used by health care professionals who are trained or supervised in the appropriate uses and limitations of self-report questionnaires and who have experience working with people suffering from chronic illness and physical pain problems.
