From: A process for Decision-making after Pilot and feasibility Trials (ADePT): development following a feasibility study of a complex intervention for pelvic organ prolapse

  1. aPOP-SS score: 0 = none, 28 = all symptoms all the time; ba negative value indicates an improvement at 6 months. POP-SS, pelvic organ prolapse symptom score; POP-Q, pelvic organ prolapse quantitation.
