The Current Opioid Misuse Measure (COMM)™ is a brief patient self-assessment to monitor chronic pain patients on opioid therapy. The COMM™ was developed with guidance from a group of pain and addiction experts and input from pain management clinicians in the field. Experts and providers identified six key issues to determine if patients already on long-term opioid treatment are exhibiting aberrant medication-related behaviors:

  • Signs & Symptoms of Intoxication
  • Emotional Volatility
  • Evidence of Poor Response to Medications
  • Addiction
  • Healthcare Use Patterns
  • Problematic Medication Behavior
