In another thread, @mike2014 wrote, I think that that is a great idea. Thanks for suggesting it. Systematically gathering feedback has been on my mind for a while. The nonprofit is getting large and complex enough that it is getting harder and harder for me to keep on top of everything. For example, there is content that I would like to add to the SEP, but I don't know which of the 42 days are working well and which days are working less well. Concretely, Dr. David Clarke has donated an essay about self-care and I can't add it without removing something else. The current plan is to add it on Day 37 to replace content on that day that people are having trouble accessing. (This will take a while because I don't have anyone to delegate things to who already knows how to edit Wikipedia-style wiki pages. Also, coming up with professional language that communicates the right things can be very time consuming.) I've found that the best decisions result from not just one piece of feedback, but many. Feedback forms could help us gather enough information that we can be more responsive by focusing on the most important needs. I've gone ahead and drafted a form: http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/forms/feedback-on-the-structured-educational-program.3/respond I've gone ahead and added it to the footer at the bottom of each day since day-specific feedback is so valuable. It will take a bit longer to add it to the final day, as it may take a while to come up with the right language. Ideally, it seems like an opportunity to have people reflect back on the program and get some closure on the process. Of course, we want to keep it very concise and professional as well. If anyone has any thoughts on how to present it, I'd love to hear them. Another thought that has been marinating in my brain for a couple of years is collecting outcome information before and after people take the program. One idea that comes up periodically for how we could expand the nonprofit would be to apply for grants. Research has suggested that our chances of getting a grant will be greatly enhanced if we collect data on outcomes. Similarly, experience from the comments to the recent HuffPo article suggest that gathering data is one of the few things that we can do to significantly build credibility. Using validated measures would, one would think, enhance the chances of this data being persuasive. The following came from an email I sent, but captures some of my current thinking on this: At the wiki we evaluated the Roland Morris and the Oswestry scales for measuring progress by people completing our Structured Educational Program. The idea would be to have people complete the questionnaire on the first day of the program and on the last. Results would be collected via a Google Form. We decided that the Roland Morris scale would be better for us because it was shorter and therefore more likely to be completed. It is also completely royalty free and available online at http://www.rmdq.org/ By the way, PPD practitioner and SIRPA executive board member Mags Clark-Smith has done a very compelling poster using the Morris scale: http://www.resolvingchronicpain.com/s/Mags-Clark-Smith-SBPR-poster.pdf To any individual practitioner who is thinking of collecting data, I'd highly recommend taking a look at Mags' poster. Her presentation at the 2015 SIRPA conference has the same title as the poster, so I'd bet she's presenting it there. One problem with the Morris scale for us is that it focuses on back pain. In contrast, many PPD consumers are concerned with symptoms beyond just back symptoms. However, from what I gather, it is appropriate to replace "because of my back pain" with "because of my pain" or even "because of my pain or other symptom" to expand the applicability. According to , "A number of researchers have proposed modifications to the RDQ. The simplest modification to the wording of the questionnaire has been to change the terminal phrase of each statement from “because of my back” to “because of my back or leg problem.”  This makes the questionnaire more suitable for use in a population of patients with sciatica and is an acceptable modification."

Regarding the wiki's data collection, Dr. Clarke suggested that it would be valuable to survey people 6/12/24 months later to see if gains are maintained. I don't know if we have resources for that.
