Abstract and Keywords
It is now easier than ever before to access digital health information. Individuals can monitor and record information about their own health, gather information online, and share personal experiences with those in a similar position. In fact, this shift towards peer-to-peer sharing sites represents a significant change in the way people think about online health information and raises a number of challenges around eHealth and personal information management, including issues of trust, privacy, and self-disclosure. This chapter examines two of those challenges in light of increased peer exchange around health: the sharing of personal health information, and the curation of such a large and complex information resource. It also discusses directions for future research in the field.
