Assessment of pruritus intensity: prospective study on validity and reliability of the visual analogue scale, numerical rating scale and verbal rating scale in 471 patients with chronic pruritus.
High reliability and concurrent validity was found for VAS, NRS and VRS for chronic itch and on re-test, higher correlation and less missing values were observed.
Visual analogue scale: evaluation of the instrument for the assessment of pruritus.
The VAS is a valuable method of pruritus measurement and showed very good reproducibility (intraclass coefficient (ICC) > 0.8).
Clinical classification of itch: a position paper of the International Forum for the Study of Itch.
This is the first version of a clinical classification worked out by the members of the International Forum for the Study of Itch intended to serve as a diagnostic route for better evaluation of patients with chronic pruritus and aims to improve patients' care.
