Just noticed an interesting post from Anna Martin, http://francesobolensky.blogspot.com/2011/03/cambridge-hack-day.html about the Internet informed Patient Hack day at Churchill College Cambridge held in March 2011. Her post is worth reading, as it summarises some key points nicely. Looking at the day's website, the blurb says "One of the most important trends in health care in the next decade will be the rise of the “Internet-informed patient”. This brings in issues of health information literacy, and also issues about "lay" information intermediaries.
Symposium website is at http://www.iip-symposium.info/ and it includes background papers and liveblogs from the day.
