The purpose of this data registry is to prospectively collect data from patients referred to an Complex Chronic Diseases Program (CCDP) at BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre to assess the quality of life of the CCDP Patients before, during and after their care at the CCDP.
1. Before their initial intake appointment, all CCDP patients are given a patient binder that includes the baseline Standardized Questionnaires. These are clinical questionnaires that all patients complete regardless of whether or not they consent to participation in research. In addition to the questionnaires completed at baseline, patients who consent to participate in the data registry will complete the questionnaires, via email or paper copy, at the following time points: approximately 6 months after intake, at discharge and 3 months post-discharge.
2. Patients who consent to the data registry will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire collecting basic demographic information at baseline. The demographic questionnaire will be either mailed to their home or sent via an online link; the investigators will ask participants to complete this form either before or when they come in for their first in-person visit at the CCDP.
3. Additional data will be collected and entered from the clinical chart. Specifically, after the patient's initial clinic appointment, the Research Coordinator or designate will enter data points from the Interdisciplinary Assessment Tool, into REDCap.

A common nonarticular rheumatic syndrome characterized by myalgia and multiple points of focal muscle tenderness to palpation (trigger points). Muscle pain is typically aggravated by inactivity or exposure to cold. This condition is often associated with general symptoms, such as sleep disturbances, fatigue, stiffness, HEADACHES, and occasionally DEPRESSION. There is significant overlap between fibromyalgia and the chronic fatigue syndrome (FATIGUE SYNDROME, CHRONIC). Fibromyalgia may arise as a primary or secondary disease process. It is most frequent in females aged 20 to 50 years. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1494-95)

A syndrome characterized by persistent or recurrent fatigue, diffuse musculoskeletal pain, sleep disturbances, and subjective cognitive impairment of 6 months duration or longer. Symptoms are not caused by ongoing exertion; are not relieved by rest; and result in a substantial reduction of previous levels of occupational, educational, social, or personal activities. Minor alterations of immune, neuroendocrine, and autonomic function may be associated with this syndrome. There is also considerable overlap between this condition and FIBROMYALGIA.
