Session type Topic Cancer and Palliative Care Abstract title SCORING SYSTEM FOR BREAKTHROUGH-PAIN LIKELIHOOD IN CANCER PATIENTS: AN IMPACT STUDY Objectives: Breakthrough Cancer pain (BTcP) shows variable prevalence and challenging management. We report the preliminary results of an impact multicenter study with a novel Scoring System (SS) based on a validated diagnostic/prognostic tool, the IQ-BTP1,2, for BTcP recognition and likelihood (High, Intermediate, Low).  Methods: The IQ-BTP SS was administered at 3 consecutive visits to n=100 patients. Other studied variables were: demographics, disease related information, pain therapy, Brief Pain Inventory and, physician concordance with and appreciation of the SS. We planned to establish among patients with potential BTcP the proportions of its High, Intermediate and Low likelihood and the feasibility/reliability of the SS. Results: The majority of the patients were correctly classified as potentially having (or not having) BTcP. In Visit #1, 2 and 3, respectively, ‘potential BTcP’ was found in 40, 43 and 24% of the patients with, respectively, high (48, 33 and 46%), intermediate (38, 51 and 50%) and low (15, 16 and 8%) likelihood. Over 90% of physicians reported that the SS was feasible and very helpful in diagnosing and managing BTcP. Conclusions: The IQ-BTP with its SS and with adequate feasibility enables the detection of potential-BTP and its likelihood. The latter has significant relevance to BTcP epidemiology and management.  Bibliography  1. Samolsky Dekel BG et al.
