  • Online resources are reshaping health care. All demographics are increasingly spending time online, and a majority of Internet users utilize this powerful interactive platform to look for health information. Despite its benefits, the unregulated online environment poses unique ethical challenges for health care, such as the management of privacy, the validity of the consent process, and the burden on users to distinguish between high and low quality resources as well as to identify those potentially compromised by conflicts of interest.

    In this presentation, Julie Robillard, Green College Leading Scholar, will describe her research on online information-seeking, online information-sharing, and computerized self-diagnosis tools. She will also explore the ethical implications of these behaviours and resources for Internet users, researchers, and physicians.
