To all of you who took the survey in October, my thanks... and apologies. In looking at the data analysis it appears that some questions were misunderstood, leading to possible skewed data... as in "all skewed up!" With a rather small N=53, that leaves little margin for error. Rather than try and smooth out the data I have decided that better science requires a complete redux. Again, my apologies, but the work you all did on the last one helped us refine and expand to this present offering. It still ain't perfect, but getting better!So, I'm going to rely on your fundamental good natures (at least I believe most of you have one when not undergoing a pulse!) and ask you all to do the CAP Treatment Survey over again.
This version is considerably expanded in the symptom questions, and so will take a longer time to complete.
Pay particular attention to the symptom rating scale, making sure you respond for pulses as according to your most recent pulse.
Please take only once, and please do not start it if you don't believe you can complete it in one sitting.
I suspect it will take between 25-40 minutes for most of us, and requires mostly mouse clicking with little typing. I will leave the survey available for a longer period to make sure members see it. Although leaving your email is not required, it would help us to double check any apparent errors, as well as to followup with more specific questions. This is particularly important for those with an MS diagnosis, as Marie has some future questionnaires she would like to correlate with the reporting from this one.Please use the link below to start the survey when you are ready.
PS-Thanks to Norman Yarvin whose programing expertise helped make many things easier for me on this survey, and whose cogent editing and science-mindedness helped make it a better survey.
