Abstract

The chapter discusses the design and development of an online patient support group for renal patients, where co-creation of information was vital. The chapter covers the identification of information needs for this group, how users might engage with the website, an evaluation of the website that demonstrated levels of engagement, and how activity theory contributed to an understanding of the way the information might lead to better patient outcomes.
