Health literacy

Thanks to Vivienne Bernath in alerting me to a study about the use of Google by people to diagnose their own illnesses, commissioned by BUPA (the healthcare company). She sent me a link to this Australian news item
Moses, A. (2011) "Alarm sounded over Dr Google's diagnosis.", February 10.
This is the press release on the British BUPA website from January (it ends with "Bupa’s tips for checking information quality")
