Abstract

This project seeks to examine the ways in which patients identify information, whether they present that information to their physicians, how they value the information presented by physicians and, ultimately, how these various processes shape their behaviour. The research described in this application is intended as a preliminary exploratory project that will provide a basis for a large-scale quantitative survey study to cover similar questions which, in turn, will provide critical information for any future intervention regarding patient´s use of information sources.
