    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    We present the development of an innovative web-based learning tool for general practitioners on back pain. Clinical assessment is demonstrated by the use of podcasts. These include patient histories and clinical examination of common conditions affecting the spine. This traditional clinical assessment is complimented by novel 3D models and animations that explain important pathological processes.
