Your help needed to develop an instrument to measure ‘e-health literacy’

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark and Deakin University, Australia are developing an instrument to measure ‘e-health literacy’ in current and future users of healthcare.

To develop this instrument they are undertaking a comprehensive consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. This includes the perspective of users of the healthcare system, as well as the perspective of ‘experts’, i.e. researchers, healthcare professionals, managers and policymakers.

They are looking for help with this task to ensure that the research is comprehensive, asking for your views and observations on what a person needs to be able to do in order to use digital health services (e-health). To do this there is an online survey, which takes about 3 to 5 minutes to complete.

Please complete the survey no later than Wednesday, 1 August 2012. The researchers will collate statements from all respondents over the next month or so. In a second e-mail, they will ask you to group and rank individual statements in terms of importance.

The output will be a comprehensive map of the key elements of e-health literacy. This information will be integrated with data generated from workshops with both health care users and professionals. The final goal is the production of an internationally relevant tool to measure e-health literacy.

If you wish to receive a copy of the results of this research, please indicate this on the last page of the survey.
