I'm doing a lit review for grad school and am finding very little information (research) about physicians and mid-levels utilizing the internet for health information; I'm finding even less about physicians being open to discussing the information patients find online. As a practicing nurse practitioner, do you have trouble with this? Are patients bringing in bogus info, real data, or actual questions from information they've found online? Am I simply wrong in the assumption that because patients are out there looking online for health information that they're actually bringing this back to the providers? Thanks for your input! No - this is not scientific and to be included in my lit review - but I am curious, as this could be a rather interesting area of study for the future - or a good line of work of the nurse entrepreneurs out there! Anyone need a former search engine optimization specialist turned RN and FNP student to spruce up a web site? See what I'm getting at??? Too bad I didn't want to stick with that!
