Survey About Community Impact

Nov 29, 2016 9:13 AM

EDIT: This survey has been closed. A big THANK YOU to the 322 community members who have completed the survey !!!

Dear Pain Companion and CatchMyPain community members,

Our medical advisor Dr. Marc Fouradoulas and I have been working on a survey about the impact of our online community  on your daily life and on your ability to manage pain. This survey is now finally ready and I would like to kindly ask you to participate. By doing so you will help me to further improve the community based on your needs and you will help the science world to understand the impact of patient communities (Dr. Fouradoulas is taking care of this second part).

The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete and we are going to raffle off three $50 gift cards for Amazon, iTunes or Google Play (winners choose the type of gift card) among all those who complete the survey before December 18th, 2016.

Here is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/paincommunity

Kind regards and thanks a lot for your support,

PS: Soon, I am going to send out an email announcing the survey. Because I won't know who has completed the survey already, you will get the email despite having completed the survey already. In that case, please just ignore the email. I apologize for the spam and thanks for completing the survey ;-)

Hi Daniel. I think you need another option under work besides doesn't affect, can't work as much, and can't work at all.
I still work full time but i cannot do anything else at all, i think that needs to be an option too.

Nov 29, 2016 12:53 PM

Or just a few lines where we could explain our answer if none of yours works. Like give the option of other..

Completed Daniel, Thank You for taking the time out of your day to keep this site up and running for all of us, you have no idea what it means to to me! S million Times Thank You from the bottom of my heart! 💖🌹

All done. Thanks for the opportunity. I hope info helps keep this app afloat.
Some questions should have a N/A (not applicable) option... in my country medical insurance is for private elective surgery and not required within our free public health system.

All done x

Many thanks to all of you for completing the survey! As of now we have over 30 replies and that's a good start (I still haven't sent out the emails).

And many thanks for your feedback regarding the questions/answers. In general, I have to say that once we have started the survey, we cannot add or change the questions/answers. Otherwise we would not be able to use the answers that we've got so far. But be assured that this won't be the last survey. I am going to dive deeper into some of those topics based on the results. I will make sure to apply your suggestions in the next survey.

@gotobef: That's a very good suggestion! We didn't think of that option but I now see that it is an important one.

@Mimikay: I will make sure to add more "other" fields in the next survey.

@KiwiCycle: And I will make sure to add more N/A answer options. The healthcare systems around the world are indeed very different.

Again, many thanks to everybody! :-D

Agree with Gotobef, I work full time and can't do anything else! 😕 Thanks for all of your hard work and help with connecting a community!

Dec 12, 2016 6:20 PM

I've taken the survey, but I'm afraid I haven't been involved long enough to make more accurate choices. I see the benefits of the community for a lot of people, but I haven't been involved long enough to make any connections. 😕

Dec 14, 2016 12:08 PM

Hooray, we have over 200 replies by now. Thank you so much for completing the survey :-D

Dec 16, 2016 6:14 AM
