First time blogger!
Hello Everyone! This is my first time writing a blog. The Living Healthy is a company that educates the public about the health and wellness. Unfortunately there is too much miss information on this subject. We will make this blog very interesting and give funny factual health information that you would need. Also check out our www.livinghealthy1.com for further healthy, nutrition and wellness information, products, workshops and classes.
Here is an interesting article called Learn About Illness in a Patient’s Own Words from the University of Oxford called Health Talk Online. Enjoy!
The specialist medical team in Oxford came up with the idea of a database of patients’ experiences (DIPEx) to be posted on the internet and eventually to be further disseminated on DVD. The aim of the UK Team is to improve understanding of people’s experience of illness, to educate on health issues holistically, and to promote a more balanced encounter between patient and health professional. Patients can use the database as a resource that provides them with some indication of the feelings of others who have experienced similar procedures or ailments. Health professionals, on the other hand, can get an indication of patients’ priorities and understand procedures from the other point of view. The site includes over 1,000 pages of accurate medical information and, more uniquely, has over 85 hours of audio and video footage of patients detailing their experiences of conditions ranging from breast cancer to epilepsy, from depression to antenatal screening.
