Health information-seeking behaviour on the web

The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control has published a literature review providing an overview of online health information-seeking behaviour among European adults from the perspective of both the health consumer and the health professional.

“… The purpose of this literature review is to provide an overview of online health information-seeking behaviour by adults from the perspective of both the health consumer and the health professional. The review crosses a number of disciplines including communication science, medicine, health promotion, social marketing, psychology and information technology.

Specific objectives include:

  • documenting internet accessibility and usage patterns;
  • outlining online health information consumer profiles;
  • identifying online sources of health information;
  • outlining health professionals’ internet use; and
  • ascertaining challenges for health professionals posed by internet use…”
