IPOS-5 is a briefer version of the full IPOS. It contains five items - those considered most important to patients and families (such as pain, breathlessness, anxiety, and information needs), but also in relation to their healthcare provision (for instance, breathlessness is one of the commonest reasons for emergency admission; Higginson et al., 2014). It also includes the 'at peace' question as this globally reflects psychological and existential domains across diverse backgrounds, cultures and beliefs (Selman et al., 2013).
 
Note: The IPOS-5 was developed primarily for the UK clinical context; the full IPOS is still the recommended measure for clinical and research use wherever possible.
