(MULTI) – The Spine App | M. Guentchev & M. Sail­er


Patient-physician communication is an integral part of building a therapeutic doctor-patient relationship, which is crucial for the delivery of high-quality health care. A large portion of patient dissatisfaction and many complaints can be attributed to breakdown of the doctor-patient relationship, unrealistic expectations and insufficient information regarding risks and prognosis of the disease (PMID: 21603354).
A mul­ti­lin­gual tool for help­ing pa­tients around the globe suf­fer­ing from spine dis­ease. By provid­ing de­tailed back­ground in­form­a­tion The Spine­app aims at im­prov­ing the trans­fer of com­plex med­ic­al know­ledge from med­ic­al pro­fes­sion­als to pa­tients and ul­ti­mately help pre­pare the pa­tient for a con­sulta­tion with a spine spe­cial­ist.
Medi­cine is an ever-chan­ging sci­ence. As new re­search and clin­ic­al ex­per­i­ence broaden our know­ledge, changes in treat­ment are re­quired. The au­thors of the Spine App have checked with sources be­lieved to be re­li­able in their ef­forts to provide in­form­a­tion that is com­plete and gen­er­ally in ac­cord with the stand­ards ac­cep­ted at the time of pub­lic­a­tion. However, there is a pos­sib­il­ity of hu­man er­ror or changes in med­ic­al sci­ences. Thus, read­ers are en­cour­aged to con­firm the in­form­a­tion con­tained herein with oth­er sources (e.g. drug in­form­a­tion sheets, text­books or re­search pa­pers). Since our goal is to con­stantly im­prove The Spine App we are open to sug­ges­tions for im­prov­ing the con­tent.
