Description: Rural health care providers and patients often face obstacles different from those in urban areas in accessing consumer health information. This is due to the geographical, cultural, and economic factors that impact how providers deliver care and how patients receive it. Papers under this sub-theme should aim to share experiences of innovative ways regarding how consumer information is delivered to the rural communities and how the communities receive and utilise it.

Papers may focus on:

  • Access to health information by rural communities: the role of librarians
  • Consumers of health information provision, Innovative rural health information services delivery
  • Patient care and patient empowerment to health information
  • Promotional of Health care information communication
