International Journal of User-Driven Healthcare (IJUDH) Volume 4, Issue 3

Book Description

The International Journal of User-Driven Healthcare (IJUDH) is a refereed, applied research journal designed to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of clinical problem solving in healthcare. The term "user" includes health professionals as well as patients and anyone who uses the web with a user name. These "users" generate an information flow that "drives" the system's workflow (hence the choice of the term "driven"). "User-driven healthcare" aims at improved healthcare through clinical problem solving utilizing concerted experiential learning in conversations between multiple users and stakeholders, primarily patients, health professionals, and other actors in a care giving collaborative network across a Web interface. The journal serves as a valuable academic platform for all these stakeholders to document and share their learning.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Perspectives: Fourteen Aphorisms - From Problem Solving to Relationship Building
  • Medical Students Meet User Driven Health Care for Patient Centered Learning in Clinical Medicine
  • Ranitidine-Induced Hepatitis in a Young Man with Myalgia and Insomnia: Narratives in Conversational Learning Experience
  • Case Study: Stroke and Diaphragmatic Palsy leading to Pneumonia
  • Case Study: Glaucoma and Epidemic Dropsy - A Past Possible Association Revisited
