Internet, Health and Society. Implications for health promotion in Catalonia

May 7, 2008

Yesterday, I was invited by Cristina Iniesta, Hospital del Mar Manager Director and Health Promoting Hospital Network Coordinator, to present the results from Internet, Health and Society in Catalonia in one of the network meetings at Hospital Sant Joan de Deu.

The aims of the presentation were: (1) to analyse in what way and to what extent the Internet is adopted and embedded by Catalan health system; (2) to discuss the implications for health promotion, taking into account Health Promoting Hospital objectives and, (3) to find ways of future collaborations.

The atmosphere of the session was excellent. I’m sure we will find many ways of future collaboration. Finally, I’m grateful to Kathryn O´Connor, my wonderful English teacher at UOC, for introducing me Cristina Iniesta and, last but not least, I would like to thank Cristina Iniesta for her kind invitation and her open thinking.
