For those interested in empowering consumers and patients, thereâ€™s an interesting upcoming conference: Consumer Health Informatics Conference. The goal of the conference is:
to focus on the technical, social, ethical and professional issues arising from consumer empowerment using information technology.
The conference is a one-day (Tuesday Oct. 30, 2007) event held at Ottawaâ€™s National Arts Centre. The program seems very interesting and based on my knowledge of the speakers, should be a thought-provoking and challenge filled day.
