Patient Education as an Information System, Healthcare Tool and Interaction
Pirhonen, Antti; Silvennoinen, Minna; Sillence, Elizabeth
Journal of Information Systems Education, v25 n4 p327-332 Fall 2014
Patient education (PE) has a crucial role in the function of a healthcare organisation. For the care process of a patient, it is essential to get the right information at the right moment and in the right form. This paper analyses PE as the primary mode of interaction between a patient and a healthcare organisation. The approach is illustrated with a study among nurses based on their conceptions about PE. Practical implications and the potential of ICT in PE in particular are discussed.
