AACI is organizing a Global Management Meeting to discuss the current use of web pages related to patient care during the COVID-19 era of restricted medical access to healthcare facilities around the world. Pandemic restrictions have left millions of vulnerable persons without reliable medical advice and care for serious life-threatening processes– cancer diagnosis and treatment, metabolic and organic disease syndromes, stroke care and therapy, trauma care, orthopedic intervention, and treatment of behavioral diagnoses.We realize that there are untold numbers of so called “scientific web pages” which, in many cases, may lead to harm or life-threatening consequences as their purpose is other than legitimate patient care.
With these thoughts in mind, we strongly believe it is the right time to invite interested medical professionals to contribute their thoughts in a “round-table” discussion related to this risk.
