What is the background of the project?
The project aims to improve the existing regimens for treating spine
diseases, mostly compression fractures, for the benefit of both
patients and society.
This project is divided into patient-based outcomes research and
evaluation of specific interventions, altogether tied up by uniform
trial methodology and guidelines for health economic evaluation.
The innovative elements of the project range from translational
medicine to randomized clinical trials (RCTs).
