ConceptRevised Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS-r)
DescriptionThe ESAS-r is a tool that was developed to assist in the assessment of nine symptoms that are common in palliative care patients: pain, tiredness, drowsiness, nausea, lack of appetite, depression, anxiety, shortness of breath, and wellbeing.
UseUse to record a profile of symptom severity at a point in time. The ESAS is a tool that was developed to assist in the assessment of nine symptoms that are common in palliative care patients: pain, tiredness, drowsiness, nausea, lack of appetite, depression, anxiety, shortness of breath, and wellbeing. There is also a blank scale for patient-specific symptoms. The ESAS-r is intended to capture the patient’s perspective on symptoms. However, in some situations it may be necessary to obtain a caregiver’s perspective. The ESAS-r provides a profile of symptom severity at a point in time. Repeated assessments may help to track changes in symptom severity over time. If it is not possible to rate a symptom, the caregiver may use the null flavour 'Not applicable' to indicate 'Unable to assess' on the relevant symptom. The revised Edmonton Symptom Assessment System Revised (ESAS-r)(1) replaces the ESAS (2). The ESAS-r is freely available for use, with appropriate acknowledgement of its source.
MisuseThe ESAS-r is only one part of a holistic clinical assessment. It is not a complete symptom assessment in itself. Not to be used to record a single symptom only, use the CLUSTER.symptom_sign archetype for this purpose.
PurposeTo record a profile of symptom severity at a point in time.
