Documenting sickness on the internet

SocietyGuardian.co.uk | Health | Documenting sickness on the internet

This article in today's Guardian describes how web blogs are being used by individuals as part of their therapy, the latest in a long line of examples of the "union of health and the diarist".

The key example given is Ivan Noble's Tumour Diary following his death last week.

Perhaps a free blog from the NHS, as part of a comprehensive package of care for those with chronic or terminal illness, is an application Health Space should consider?
