Overview of the Workshop


The Internet has an important role in the provision of reliable,
relevant and timely health information for the public and patients.
Traditionally, authoritative health information has been based on facts
and figures, not the experiences of patients. However the rise of
patient-generated content on the Internet, in the form of online patient
experiences (PEx) has changed the landscape of health decision-making.
Online PEx can have both positive and negative influences - PEx can
enhance social support, and facilitate adjustment to an illness but can
also raise anxiety levels and in an unmoderated format can deliver very
powerful but misleading messages. PEx is important for researchers and
e-health designers alike and in this workshop we seek to bring the new
PEx community together to share new approaches and findings.


We are inviting 2-4 page papers for consideration for this workshop.
Submissions should be sent to Dr. Phoenix Mo
([log in to unmask]), by the 1st May 2011.
