POS is a tool to measure patients' physical symptoms, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs, and provision of information and support at the end of life.

It is a validated instrument that can be used in clinical care, audit, research and training. It is widely used internationally, including in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and America.

POS can be downloaded from this website and is available in 11 languages including English.

POS-S is an additional module for symptoms which can be used alongside POS to capture more information about symptoms for a range of conditions such as cancer, heart failure and respiratory conditions. Extended versions have also been developed for use with patients living with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and end-stage renal disease.
