Delaying proper treatment due to poor diagnosis is detrimental to a patient's well being. The sooner a patient with a non-musculoskeletal issue is referred to the correct practitioner, the sooner the patient will receive the best and most appropriate treatment. The first course in the Differential Diagnosis of the Spine series deals with understanding statistics to be able to utilize Clinical Prediction Rules for diagnosis and treatment.
