Studies have shown that electronic questionnaires provide more accurate and reproducible data when compared to face-to-face interviews or paper-based questionnaires as individuals are more honest and open when answering highly personal questionnaires on a computer screen. Developed over a ten year period in Sheffield and already in use in a number of hospitals throughout the UK, the e-PAQ® (Pelvic Floor) software is an easy-to-use, touch-screen compatible electronic questionnaire for use in assessing a range of pelvic floor problems in women.
Aimed at both the primary and secondary care sectors, e-PAQ® (Pelvic Floor) allows a patient to complete a detailed questionnaire about her condition in her own time and in privacy prior to an appointment with her GP or consultant. The questionnaire can be completed on a computer terminal in a surgery or hospital or at home using the online version of the questionnaire available over the internet (http://www.epaq-online.co.uk). Analysis tools included as part of the software package allow the GP or consultant to assess the answers given by the patient so as to assist in the diagnosis or monitoring of a condition and to evaluate the impact that it is having on a patients’ quality of life.
