Abstract

The recent publicity around the tragic case of Bronte Doyne has highlighted a pressing need in healthcare delivery: the need for doctors to know that their patients, “e-patients,” know medicine. In turn, this requires our medical students to be trained in how best to utilise the potential of e-patients in healthcare delivery. “I can't begin to tell you how it feels to have to tell an oncologist they are wrong, it's a young person's cancer. I had to, I'm fed up of trusting them.” – Bronte Doyne (Vize 2015)
