AASP PREPARES ONLINE TUTORAL FOR SPINE CONDITIONS
The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is committed to helping members educate their patients and the public by implementing an online Spine Condition lookup feature. This will incorporate the use of a template approach designed to simplify the users ability to access information in a logical and consistent format. This "need-to-know" information will be posted within the AASP Public Information Center (PIC) and will replace the current condition descriptions. Prior to the end of the year, the AASP anticipates placing about 40 spine condition look ups online. Categories under each condition will include a condition description, an overview of signs and symptoms, natural progression, differential diagnosis, diagnostic methods used to identify and characterize the condition and treatment options. Digital illustrations will be used to help educate the user.
