Abstract

Health information is required by a wide range of people in a variety of situations at any given time. The information provided may be about medical tests or treatments, clinical trials, conditions and diseases or how to access the information, but the list of possible topics is infinite. As a health information professional you may be working with health professionals such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, biomedical scientists amongst many others; patients, the general public, researchers or businesses etc.. Thus health information helps health professionals provide quality care, provides evidence for researchers improving health care outcomes, helps patients to find out about their conditions and make informed choices and helps the public find answers to their questions.
