    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    Health practice is essentially a human experience that is underpinned by relationships. These relationships form particularly between health practitioners and people who seek health services, between health practitioner colleagues, and between health practitioners and organisational managers. This social dimension of health practice is important because it draws attention to the significance of how health practice is experienced (by both health practitioners and individuals seeking health services) and to health outcomes. In recent years, information and communication technologies have expanded considerably and have many and varied influences on health practice and practice relationships.
