Abstract

Two pilot studies were conducted in the area of diabetes and cancer to develop an interactive computer-based health education, where the content on the information provided would depend on information in the patient's medical record. In the area of diabetes, the information contained background information about the patient's specific problems, treatments and measurements. It was tested on three groups of health professionals and eleven of their patients, and yielded positive feedbacks. In the area of cancer care, the goal was to help reduce the patients' anxiety about their treatment programme, and help them better understand it. The knowledge base covered cancer and text planning 'rules', but was essentially similar to that of diabetes.
