Reliable Sources: Orencia Cough Side Effect & Notions of e-Patients

“That story happened to me. That’s why I loved that Tweet from Kelly Kunik during last night’s Twitter HCSM (Healthcare communications social media) discussion. A doctor had questioned whether e-patient bloggers are credible sources.
He argued that patients create “echo chambers” and get information from Wikipedia, which is unreliable. I Tweeted that none of the e-patients I know use Wikipedia as a source for healthcare information. Let’s just say he didn’t agree.”
