The Gustave Roussy Child Pain Scale (Douleur Enfant Gustave Roussy, DEGRRScale) is a scale for grading prolonged pain in children aged 2–6 years with cancer. The scale comprised six behaviours specific to pain items, five psychomotor inertia items, and four anxiety items, with a total score ranging from 0 to 60.
