Effective Approaches: Study Questionnaires

The following is an addendum to the article “Effective Approaches: Multidisciplinary Pain Management” which appeared in the Jan/Feb 2002 issue of Practical Pain Management and presents the questionnaires employed in the study but not published with the article.

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.
