Abstract
Patient empowerment is examined as a multi-dimensional factor influencing the use of diabetes self-management apps. The research design includes three studies conducted in Singapore. Study 1 examines how features of diabetes self-management apps correspond with theoretical indicators of empowerment, as well as app quality. Study 2 uses semi-structured face-to-face interviews with diabetes patients to draw first conclusions about the relevance of empowerment for diabetes app use. Study 3 includes an online patient survey, and uses cluster analytical methods to test the preliminary Study 2 results (typology of app use), as well as binary logistic regression to compare the strength of influence of various anteceding factors on the likelihood of diabetes app use. The studies show that especially the support by private social patient networks and the medical specialties of supervising physicians play a crucial role for technology-supported self-management.

Abstract
This unique collection synthesizes insights and evidence from innovators in consumer informatics and highlights the technical, behavioral, social, and policy issues driving digital health today and in the foreseeable future. Consumer Informatics and Digital Health presents the fundamentals of mobile health, reviews the evidence for consumer technology as a driver of health behavior change, and examines user experience and real-world technology design challenges and successes. Additionally, it , identifies key considerations for successfully engaging consumers in their own care, considers the ethics of using personal health information in research, and outlines implications for health system redesign. The editors’ integrative systems approach heralds a future of technological advances tempered by best practices drawn from today’s critical policy goals of patient engagement, community health promotion, and health equity. Here’s the inside view of consumer health informatics and key digital fields that students and professionals will find inspiring, informative, and thought-provoking. Included among the topics: Healthcare social media for consumer informatics; Understanding usability, accessibility, and human-centered design principles; Understanding the fundamentals of design for motivation and behavior change; Digital tools for parents: innovations in pediatric urgent care; Behavioral medicine and informatics in the cancer community; Content strategy: writing for health consumers on the web; Open science and the future of data analytics; Digital approaches to engage consumers in value-based purchasing. Consumer Informatics and Digital Health takes an expansive view of the fields influencing consumer informatics and offers practical case-based guidance for a broad range of audiences, including students, educators, researchers, journalists, and policymakers interested in biomedical informatics, mobile health, information science, and population health. It has as much to offer readers in clinical fields such as medicine, nursing, and psychology as it does to those engaged in digital pursuits.

Abstract
This engaging and highly practical title is designed to support healthcare professionals in providing the best possible care for their patients with migraine. Developed by two leading authorities in the field who bring wit and warmth to their writing, the book combines the valuable wisdom of their clinical expertise with cutting edge scientific synthesis and helpful clinical pearls. Replete with a plethora of instructional aids and clinical tools (such as patient handouts, questionnaires, checklists, video clips, and quick-reference boxes), Discussing Migraine with Your Patients: A Common Sense Guide for Clinicians reviews migraine treatment in an evidence-based manner -- according to the empirical data and FDA and consensus-based guidelines. Discussion topics include acute and preventive pharmacotherapy, medical interventions and devices, behavioral and psychological nonpharmacologic therapies, education, trigger management, healthy lifestyle practices, stress management, neutraceuticals, and alternative medicine offerings. In addition, this easy-to-read title covers genetics and pathophysiology, symptoms and comorbidities, and a range of essential clinical skills that are useful in achieving the best possible outcomes with patients. In invaluable addition to the literature, this title will serve as the ultimate go-to resource for primary care clinicians and trainees. Headache specialists, too, will find value in this work.

Abstract
This book examines the most up-to-date strategies that can be used to enhance the healthcare professional-patient interaction to influence positive behavior change and improve treatment adherence in pulmonary healthcare. This book is written by experts in the field who couple their experience with practical strategies (the art) with evidence-based theory (the science). Chapters discuss global concepts such as motivational interviewing on improving engagement and how to apply strategies to specific situations (for examples: smoking cessation, promoting physical activity, inhaler adherence, supplemental oxygen use, and non-invasive ventilation) commonly experienced on the front lines of caring for patients with pulmonary disorders. The textbook raises awareness of direct approaches and recent technological advances that healthcare professionals can use to support positive behavior change in their day-to-day clinical practice. Effective, patient-tailored self-management interventions are discussed, including the evidence for these interventions and ways to personalize the strategies to each patient’s unique needs. This book is an ideal guide for healthcare professionals working with patients experiencing chronic pulmonary conditions, including pulmonologists, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurses, trainees, and the many allied health professionals involved in delivering care such as respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and behavioral psychologists. The concepts of this book can also be applied to the management of other chronic diseases such as coronary artery disease and diabetes mellitus.

Abstract
Many people look for health information on the Internet. Doing a quick search in a search engine like Google may give you lots of information, but it may not be the best information. As a starting point, this pamphlet gives a list of some reliable sources. Questions to ask about health-related websites are listed. The Internet can be helpful, but it should never replace your relationships with your health care providers. They are the experts.
