Guidelines for Telemedicine: Standing Committee of European Doctors, October 2002

In order to give guidance to doctors in the use of new information & communication technologies in their practice, the Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME) has developed guidelines on telemedicine, e-correspondence between doctors and their patients and on marketing of health services over the net. The CPME has also made a study in its member countries in order to evaluate in which way telemedicine is practiced and which problems have been encountered. The problems and difficulties have been analysed and the CPME has developed policies and recommendations for solutions. The reader will find opinions of the medical profession on many practical aspects of telemedicine in this book. Quite evidently the legislation has not been able to cope with the pace of the development, wherefore these guiding principles are even more important.
