Questionnaire Forms

Questionnaire Forms
With the aims to collect evidence based practice for support of clinical trials, this department has designed a patient's questionnaire form to be filled in by patients treated at various branch clinics of the Institute in the year 1994. Since then, this department has received a total number of 1863 questionnaire forms completed by patients but this does not represent the vast number of patients treated and benefitted by traditional Tibetan Medicine. Due to busy schedule of the resident doctors, patient's confidentiality, failure of responding the questionnaire forms by the patients and the lack of awareness of the importance of it are possibly the reasons behind the low number of respondent. The first volume of analytical report of the patient's questionnaire forms on five major disorders; Cancer, chronic Liver disorder, Diabetes, Hypertension and Baekan mukpo which are reputed as intractable disorders in any health care system was published on the joyous occasion of Golden Jubilee ceremony of Men-Tsee-Khang in Exile on 23 March 2011. All the questionnaire forms received so far were put and assembled into 17 books. On that basis, a booklet that presents an overall compiled view on the 39 types of disorder, the efficacy of the medicine benefitted, and the clinics & doctors name was also published on Men-Tsee-Khang golden jubilee ceremony, 23 March 2011.
