Patient spine education to reduce malpractice claims is often misstepped in clinical practice.
Failure to communicate with patients is often the number one reason for malpractice claims. Physicians, surgeons, chiropractors, and other spine health care professionals are put into a position to quickly establish a relationship with spine education at the roots. According to Steven R. Eastaugh, PhD in Physician Executive, it is important to explore ways to better communicate to fewer malpractice claims and allow health care organizations to reduce litigation costs.
People in the industry know that malpractice claims are one of the fears of the business. To avoid being sued, effective patient education of spine pain generators is important to communicate in a clear and precise manner. Risk reduction strategies include effective patient education. Often patients just want to know where are why it hurts and what at the doctor is going to do to help with the problem. Dynamic Disc Designs models help the doctor, like an assistant, to show the spine problems in a dynamic way. Whether the patient is experiencing stenosis, disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, hypermobility,cervical stenosis or pain due to interposed annular disruption, dynamic models are designed from real cadaveric specimens and mimic real tissue to aid the physician.
In a patient-centred driven health care system, doctors are forced to establish patient trust in an efficient manner under time restraints. That is the nature of the business. And if doctors cannot communicate what they need to, the patient is often left with unanswered questions. Using hands on models that demonstrates the anatomy in a clean and dynamic way saves doctors time. One of the most popular models by ddd include a laser pointer to allow the doctor to precisely point to the internal aspect of the annulus and show how a disc herniation progresses through a radial tear. This model also demonstrates the innervation of the outer third of the annulus as well as neo-innervation to inner radial tears.
Dynamic Disc Designs has been developing effective spine models to improve the communication between doctors and patients in the time pressed clinical setting.
