  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
This was a pilot study to examine feasibility and preliminary effectiveness of peer support for veterans with chronic pain. Because of the small sample size and pretest/posttest design of the study, results should be interpreted with caution.
