Intervention/treatment

data collection (21-items-patient descriptive survey)

data collection (23-items-physician descriptive survey)

Detailed Description:

Telemedicine, the use of telecommunication and information technology to provide clinical health care from a distance, has become an increasing role in basic medical care internationally. Telemedicine is particularly suitable for skin diseases. In order to improve the use of evidence-based telemedicine, the Swiss patients' preferences regarding teledermatology versus face-to-face consultations and the patients' and physicians' determinants of acceptance for teledermatology are investigated in this study. Dermatology patients are asked to complete a newly-created 21-items-survey; Swiss dermatologists, other physicians and medical staff on telemedicine will complete a similar newly-created, 23-items-questionnaire. A descriptive statistical analysis (e.g. gender, age, place of residence (city or country), waiting time) will be performed.
