Patients Commons for eHealth





The WeObservatory launches the Patients Commons for eHealth (WePatients) to support patient empowerment in self-management of chronic conditions, pregnancy, disaster preparedness and ageing. The objective is to raise awareness of behavioral change models and tools that can be applied to improve patient adherence and patients' health outcomes. WePatients provides information on eHealth projects focused on patient empowerment along the stages of life, as well as resources, publications and patients' stories in three languages: English, French and Spanish.

VIH-TAVIE™: Treatment Adherence for Patients Living with HIV in Canada




VIH-TAVIE™ aims to enable patients living with HIV to incorporate the therapeutic regimen into their daily routine, coping with the side effects of medication and handling situations or circumstances that might interfere with medication intake. It also seeks to help patients interact with health professionals and mobilize social support. The VIH-TAVIE™ intervention consists of four computer sessions each 20-30 minutes long, in which the user interacts with an animated “virtual” nurse (in French or English). The nurse guides the individual through a process of learning about the aptitudes required to optimize treatment adherence. The ultimate objective of the VIH-TAVIE™ project is to make support available to patients living with HIV at all times and at their convenience in order to help them develop the skills needed to meet the challenges inherent to their health condition.

eHealth, participatory medicine, and ethical care: a focus group study of patients and health care providers use of health-related internet information.



Impact d'internet dans la relation patient-soignant: une thèse et un mémoire primés par la Fondation MACSF.

Le Dr Anne Sellier de Guis a obtenu le troisième prix dans la catégorie "professions médicales" pour sa thèse de médecine, soutenue en 2010 à la faculté de Nancy, intitulée "Impact d'internet dans la relation médecin-patient: une étude en ligne à destination des patients".


Clarisse Folcher a obtenu le troisième prix dans la catégorie "Professions paramédicales" pour son mémoire de diplôme d'infirmière, soutenu en 2014 à l'institut de formation en soins infirmiers (Ifsi) de Bagnols-sur-Cèze (Gard) et intitulé "Le patient internaute et la relation soignant-soigné".


"Ce mémoire soulève que l'impact d'internet sera tout d'abord guidé par les motivations des patients, c'est-à-dire selon une angoisse non identifiée ou sur une simple curiosité intellectuelle. Les patients internautes demanderont aux soignants une véritable adaptabilité. La situation éclaircie, les infirmiers devront côtoyer réassurance, apaisement et disponibilité afin d'instaurer une relation de confiance solide et adéquate au contexte de soin. Les professionnels retrouveront ainsi leur place de numéro un auprès des patients en reconstruisant leur crédibilité", détaille le communiqué.
