Digital Health Information: Media Coverage of Cancer and Its Impact on Patients

Online information about cancer is everywhere, but not all information is accurate or reliable and it can be difficult to determine what can be beneficial.

Please join on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 at 12 pm ET for the interactive webinar, “Digital Health Information:  Media Coverage of Cancer and Its Impact on Patients.”  During the webinar you will learn how to help patients improve their health literacy and find reliable and relevant health information online.  The webinar will:

  1.  Provide an overview of the challenges faced by patients in evaluating digital health information.
  2. Explain how social determinants of health, culture, and personal beliefs may influence how patients interpret health information.
  3. Demonstrate how media coverage affects patient understanding of cancer and medical decision-making.
  4. Discuss tips and resources for communicating with patients about health media reports.
