Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Biswas (medicine, People's College of Medical Sciences, India) and Martin (family medicine, Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Canada, and public health and primary care, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) assemble 34 chapters that explore individual user-driven strategies and patient and physician perspectives in healthcare, with the aim to further integrate the patient in the healthcare process. A global group of contributors working in communication, public health, medicine, mental health, education, and other fields, as well as patients themselves, discuss how patients are joining networks, locating other patients or professionals, and exchanging narratives of their experiences in healthcare, and how this is improving outcomes in healthcare in areas like hematology, gastroenterology, and chronic disease. They also relate how different factors influence doctors and inform their understanding of the patient narrative, and how tools like patient records can be used. Other topics include teaching the medical humanities, user-driven learning, online discussion groups, psychiatric illness and social networking, and web-based learning for medical students.
