The editors of the column, “Patient/Patron Perspectives” in Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet are looking for information professionals in any type of library (public, academic, hospital, or special) interested in writing for this column.
This column is intended to illustrate the perspectives of consumers of health information found on the Internet. The column provides an arena for consumer and health-sciences information professionals to share their use, attitudes, beliefs and understanding of health-related information found on the Internet.
Some examples of past column topics are: innovative new consumer-health programming in libraries, good and bad sources for consumer-health information, care-giving of loved ones from the librarian’s perspective, cyberchondria, and enhancing access to mental-health resources. The emerging consumer-role can have implications for health care relationships. Each article in the Patient/Patron Perspectives’ column will focus on consumers of health, and their perspectives on consumer-health found on the Internet.
Any librarians interested in submitting comments or material for publication should contact Mary Ellen Nolan, MLS, AHIP and Amy Knehans, MLIS, AHIP. Please send abstracts of 50-200 words with the e-mail subject line PROPOSAL FOR JCHI ARTICLE.
