Edited by:
Lareen Newman  
Oliver Frank  

Publisher: CSIRO Publishing

    Paperback - 2013
ISBN: PY19/04 - AU $ 75.00



This Special Issue provides readers with 13 papers looking at e-health. e-health is defined as the use of information and communication technologies for health, and covers three key areas of Internet-enabled service delivery, electronic information sharing and online health information sources. The goal of the Special Issue is to provide a variety of perspectives on current developments in e-health in Australia, as well as to highlight the rhetoric of what e-health is expected to achieve against the realities being experienced in planning, implementation and consumer engagement. The papers address a variety of health areas including maternity care, dentistry, general practice, mental health, cancer care, chronic disease, nursing and community health, and alert readers to some new ways in which e-health is occurring in Australia.

The aim of this collection of papers is to stimulate debate, encourage both new and improved uses of prioritisation and evaluation approaches, and to contribute to enhanced e-health development.
