Taking Health Information Behaviour into Account: implications of a neglected element for successful implementation of consumer health technologies on older adults (HIBA)

Many e-health services and technologies have not been successful in bringing sustainable innovations into health care practices. E- health services and technologies often fail to acknowledge the interdependency of technology, socioeconomic environment and the entire spectrum of citizens’ health information behaviour.

Spanning the boundaries of information behaviour and practices

The 2018 edition of the ISIC conference organised (in an excellent manner, thank you!) this time at the Jagiellonian University of Krakow offered, as usual, a plenty of interesting ideas to consider.

When is information work?

Information science researchers and practitioners discuss information activities using a large number of different terms. A concept that often appears in colloquial discussions of information activities but that has received less systematic attention in information science research is that of information work.

All life-events are significant!

Prof. Ian Ruthwen (University of Strathclyde) held an interesting keynote at 2016 edition of the ISIC - Information Behaviour Conference in Zadar, Croatia. He talked about information behaviours (sic!) related to significant life events and made broadly remarks on what is significant in significant life events and how these aspects have possible repercussions on how people deal with information.
