Abstract
Interview data from a quantitative and qualitative research project explores how people with hepatitis C use print- and internet-based information sources. The interviews are part of a larger quantitative and qualitative research project exploring the use of print- and internet-based information sources by people with hepatitis C. Findings indicate that the internet is used by people with hepatitis C to clarify information from health professionals and to keep up with treatment developments. The poster identifies strategies used by people with hepatitis C to navigate and negotiate this changing health information environment, including means of assessing the reliability and validity of information found on the internet.
