    Spotlight on AJN 2011 Book of the Year Award Winner: Health Technology Literacy

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jun 19, 2012 10:33:34 AM

    Recipient of the prestigious American Journal of Nursing 2011 Book of the Year Award, Health Technology Literacy: A Transdisciplinary Framework for Consumer-Oriented Practice by Maryalice Jordan-Marsh examines the wide range of resources used by health consumers to inform and support their decisions around their own health care. Today’s health consumer is self-monitoring, building supportive social networks online or via cell phone, and engaging in treatment using interactive programs online, on CD or related media. Using evidence-based practice and relevant theories, the text analyzes the trend for health care systems to be reactive, while consumers are proactively seeking the health care information they feel they deserve.

    Read what your colleagues are saying about Health Technology Literacy: A Transdisciplinary Framework for Consumer-Oriented Practice:

    "...a 'must read' for anyone who cares about the future of health and health care, and how technology is already shaping a new consumer-oriented vision of that future.  As one of today’s leading scholars in the area of 'consumer-facing health technologies,' Dr. Jordan-Marsh has written a book that helps the rest of us understand how taking better care of ourselves is being played out in the digital age. Critical topics such as telehealth,  personal health records, serious games and the emergence of a vast array of 'self-care' devices are presented in a framework that transcends traditional disciplines and presents an exciting new perspective on what’s happening at the intersection of technology and health." - Katharyn A. May, DNSc, RN, FAAN, Professor and Dean, School of Nursing, University of Wisconsin-Madison
