With the advent of the Internet, health information has become more widely available, but questions remain over the appropriateness, accessibility, sheer volume, and quality of the materials. Here, the author provides some background on the health information-seeking behaviours of patients, and a discussion of how the healthcare professional can be an active and positive partner in the process.
