Hi Anne,

I agree with your post and also only hope that, one day, health education and communication could be done predominantly via digital media. It allows much more interaction, it is potentially constantly up-to-date and allows everyone to make his/her own opinion.

However digital media would also be the "third person" in the room, the one potentially criticizing the doctor's opinion, the one that makes doctors loose their exclusivity on knowledge.

As many other professions, a small revolution will need to take place, from a one-way transfer of knowledge to a patient engagement, a multi-directional discussions.
