ready Back Pain Consortium Dataset Requirements and Recommendations - Longitudinal Assessments

Abbreviation: BACPAC Minimum Dataset - Longitudinal Assessments

General Information
The Back Pain Consortium (BACPAC) Minimum Dataset defines a collection of core data elements to be collected in all longitudinal BACPAC studies involving chronic low back pain patients. Longitudinal assessments are performed at both baseline and 3-month follow-up visits (3-month +/- 2 weeks). Where applicable, core data elements of the BACPAC Minimum Dataset are taken from previously validated instruments (e.g., PROMIS measures). The BACPAC Minimum Dataset is an expanded version of the HEAL Initiative Core Data Elements. In addition to the longitudinal assessments, the BACPAC Minimum Dataset includes a collection of demographic and baseline characteristic core data elements, which are administered to study participants at baseline only.
