Arbor Medicus principles


1) Patients have the right to properly express themselves, free of time constraints, to tell the healthcare professional what is bothering them.

2) Time constraints are a limiting factor to this process unless technology can be employed.

3) Healthcare professionals desire to take good care of their patients, but are frustrated by many constraints.

4) The Hippocratic Oath does not come with a price list.

5) The quality of healthcare is dependent on the quantity as well as the quality of the information gathered from the patient and their family.

6) Paper questionaires are unable to adapt themselves to the individual patient.

7) Face-to-face interviews may sometimes omit important information when time is limited.

8) Computerized screening programs may uncover significant symptoms which the patient did not consider important enough to mention.
