For those of you who don't see the home page often, I just wanted to let folks know that I wrote a relatively brief post on the concept of an "information prescription" and would welcome people's thoughts on some of the questions posed there:
1) Have people found great websites or applications to help them? Whether it’s an online community, a repository of reliable cancer information, or computer/smart phone application, I’d love to learn what people are using that has proven helpful. I suspect other people would too.
2) Any thoughts on what would be most helpful, if it isn’t out there? It’d be pretty easy to do a mobile glossary of cancer terms, and ideally an easy to use, mobile version of the GRACE content, but there’s surely plenty more…
3) What if a doctor had made a collection of 2-5 minute videos about common issues, such as a version of our FAQs? Would you be put off by them handing you a “prescription” for these as quick answers to common questions, or does a video/handout/web page put you off as less than a personal interaction?
If people can share their insights as a comment after the post, or here, that'd be very welcome.
