Content identified by the HONcode team

The content below is a sample of the content identified at a specific date by the HONcode team that justifies the respect of the eight ethical principles.

The SENACA page is divided into two content formats: knowledge (knowledge contents) and the platform with the program content (SENACA health program).
The former has been created within a CTI-project under the same name SENACA, in cooperation with four university hospitals (Zurich, Geneva, Lugano, Bern). The management of the respective departements signed their responsibility for this content.
SENAcheck was developed in collaboration with the Connecticut Department of Public Health and HON, as well as Dr. med. Fischli, Chief doctor of Endocrinology, Kantonsspital Luzern and Dr. med. Mutter, Chief doctor Medicine at Kantonsspital Glarus (2008-2010). On this basis, EMN has expanded in cooperation with the inclusion of relevant internationally recognized tests for chronic risks (AGLA Risc Calculator, FINDRISC, FRAX, COPD Risk Screener) and tested in the clinical feasability study (2010-2014).
The program content is created and implemented through Medical Network EMN AG with the involvement of health care professionals (see Impressum).
The editiorial responsibility rests on John Winistoerfer a.i., Director Medical Network EMN AG.
