1. Our EHR records indicate one acute attack of back pain. Did you have other episodes (undocumented  in EHR record tethered to “NextGen” Clinic ?  (YES    NO)

2. Did you take any OTC medication for back pain in the last 6 months?   (YES  NO)

Arden syntax decision support modules were used to notify research coordinators about elligible patients in the past.
