To the Editor: The Internet has the potential
to change health systems and the patient-physician relationship radically,1 but few studies have compared the use of the Internet
by different groups of people involved in health-related decisions. We report
a study comparing the use of the Internet by patients with cancer and by the
physicians and nurses involved in their care, during the same time period
at the same institution.
