Effective Approaches: Study Questionnaires
The study utilized the following questionnaires to determine the effects of a multidisciplinary chronic pain treatment program in a group of patients who had experienced intractable chronic pain for an average of 2.8 years. The study utilized a one-group pretest-posttest, mixed factorial, quasi-experimental design.
The Positive Pain Management (PPM) Pre-Treatment Questionnaire was completed by subjects on the first day of the program, before they underwent any treatment. The PPM Post-Treatment Questionnaire was administered on the 20th and final day of the program, just before the subjects were discharged. The PPM Telephone Follow-up Questionnaire was administered over the phone at an average of 50 days post-treatment, and — for a subset of 14 patients — an additional interview at an average of 102 days post-treatment.
