M-PICS is a modified version of the Perceived Involvement in Care Scale. It revised the original measure by ugmenting it with
items that were pain specific as well as with questions that covered patient perceptions of the physician's control of the information-exchange
PCCC or QoL?
This compendium contains patient-reported measures that are either designed to specifically measure aspects of Person Centred Co-Ordinated Care (P3C), or alternatively tools that are designed to measure some aspect of Quality of Life (QoL) or Health Related Quality of Life (hrQoL). All the measures in this compendium have been broadly categorised into one of those two concepts.
Person Centred Coordinated Care
Main Domains Measured
This is the key domains that the measure is targeting.
Doctor facilitation of patient involvement, patient information
provision, patient participation in decision making
Type of measure
The measures in this compendium can take a variety of forms. Generally, they will be either Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) or Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM). However, we have also included a few measures that are completed by proxy-individual (PROXY), which are useful in instances where the respondent cannot answer directly (e.g. dementia or end of life). Sometimes, these measures can even be a composite of these types, and target both experiences and outcomes – we have labelled these measures “PROEMs”.
The person that fills in the questionnaire - e.g. patient, Health Care Professional, or proxy (normally a carer or family member)
A link to the developer of the measure, if they have a website.
The measures can be either generic or disease specific (e.g. Diabetes, Heart Failure)
Main context tested in

Main countries used in
The main countries in which the measure has been developed and used.
e.g. Adults, Children, Elderly
Main uses of measure
The context in which the measure is most often used – e.g. clinical trials; national surveys.
Designed to assess pain patients'
Used in UK?
Whether the instrument has been tested and validated within a UK healthcare context.
A crude indication of the impact of the measure on academia. This is the number of times the original publication has been cited on PubMed, divided/normalised to the years since publication.
Empowerment; Care Planning; Decision Making; Communication
Generic care planning
Shared decision making
Behaviour and communication skills
A brief description of the initially reported psychometric properties of the measure.
A factor analysis supported four factors. Factor 1 reflected health care provider information behaviors; Factor 2, health care provider facilitation of patient involvement; Factor 3, patient information provision; and Factor 4, patient participation in decision making. The M-PICS total had an internal consistency of 0.87; alphas for subscales ranged from 0.80 to 0.90. M-PICS scores related to measures of patient characteristics and outcomes, including pain-related communication barriers, psychological status, quality of life, and health care satisfaction, in predicted ways. The M-PICS is a reliable and valid measure of perceived patient-provider communication in the context of persistent pain.
