Electronic health records are moving towards an integrated system that will incorporate entire life histories of health and social care. As part of the Sussex Patient Records Enhancement Project, Lesley Axelrod will explore what this means for our health stories. She will also explore how to manage the ethical questions that arise from professional sharing of individual health histories. She will also discuss the relationship between technology and life story-telling generally, whether older people using Wii or digital memory tools.
