Health Technology Literacy: A Transdisciplinary Framework for Consumer-Oriented Practice examines the wide range of resources used by health consumers to inform, support decision-making, self-monitor, build supportive social networks online or via cell phone, and engage in treatment using interactive programs online or on CD or related media. Using evidence-based practice and relevant theories, this unique text analyzes the trend for health care systems to be reactive, while consumers are proactive for health technology.
