Abstract
由於網路科技的發展,網路諮詢的形式成為消費者尋求醫療資訊的另一參考來源。藥物網路諮詢為醫療諮詢的一項,藥物治療在照護病人中扮演著重要角色,遵從醫囑使用藥物則可改善健康,依照不同的人口特徵差異,對醫囑的需求也各有不同,因此本研究以臺灣網路E院提供之性別、年齡作為人口特徵變項,分析網路藥物諮詢提問者之尋求表達與行為特徵。研究對象為臺灣網路E院之藥物諮詢相關提問共1302則,逐篇分析其內容,以期提供藥物資訊提供者了解民眾對藥物資訊之需求。 研究發現,在語意表達及問題結構上,性別對身份表達揭露性影響較大,女性在藥物諮詢的問題中比起男性更願意提供較多的個人資訊,年齡層則對表達及問題結構較不具影響。在提問需求的分析上,女性提問者所提出之問題較男性多樣化,但兩性之間針對藥物資訊諮詢的重點仍在藥物副作用及處理、適應症、用法上,是為多數人對藥物諮詢的重點類別,各年齡層所關注的問題類別也大同小異,惟次之關注的類別有稍許的不同,13-25歲年齡層與36歲年齡層的人對藥物副作用及處理類別的提問較26-35歲多,26-35歲年齡層較其他年齡層關心藥物分級之問題。 本研究透過網路藥物諮詢提問,挖掘各個族群針對藥物諮詢的表達特徵及所需之藥物資訊。本研究之結果能提供給線上藥物諮詢服務之使用者、專業醫療人員以及藥物資訊供給者作為參考。
