Problem

Limited access to correct health information in the internet that fits the needs of the Filipinos. There are many websites, webpages and downloadable information about health & management of chronic diseases in the internet but only a few of which an ordinary Filipino can relate. Chronic disease management information in the internet are usually of western interventions to which many Filipinos cannot relate, or to most, very foreign. Still many Filipinos rely to traditional form of media in accessing information about health, especially chronic care management. There is also much information in the internet which is dubious, incorrect or inconsistent with those being known in the country. Filipinos culturally have low health-seeking behavior. Filipinos in general seek medical attention only when their conditions worsen. Still, many Filipinos are also very superstitious and depends their knowhow on chronic care management to quack or traditional practitioners which may not be scientific or evidence-based. Also, a lot of Filipinos do self-medicate, rely on their peers for management of their condition without seeking professional help. There are no programs that promotes primary healthcare and utilizes new media in the Philippines. The internet is a powerful tool to educate and provide correct information to many Filipinos – especially when we use the social media to which the country is a wide & vast user. However, there are only very few user-friendly, dynamic & interactive available online resources which an ordinary Filipino can access and relate to. Large pool of unused health human resource. The Philippines has a tremendous number of registered nurses who are unemployed and underemployed. Many of the country's nurses are exploited due to the fact that many are unemployed are desperately needing clinical job experience.

The uniqueness of each nurse come into play on what learning style works best for an individual. We can definitely embrace technology to access recent scientific ,clinical and experiential studies that pertain to roles of nursing in the 21st health care delivery system.

From a rights perspective, your group has actively promoted reproductive health and a rational public health system. As young health professionals, you continue to share your expertise and provide good information on daily health care. What's more commendable, you are comfortable with the tools of ICT and social networking. Yes, pod.RN deserves recognition and support!!

Thank you very much for your support to pod.RN. We should really find means to diversify our approach to health education, making it more accessible to a lot of people. Using social & new media and ICT is one of the best way possible to reach a larger audience. Having the online shows in Filipino makes it more understandable for a common person to digest the topics being discussed. Using Facebook, twitter and blogging makes every online show more interactive, dynamic and cool. Let's continue voting for pod.RN to win and be on air!

This innovative approach is quite inspiring. This could help in the formation of strong Filipino ties, especially in the nursing profession, in spite of all the adversities that our fellow nurses are facing. I admire the idea and hope that it could influence not only the nursing profession but all Filipinos to never lose hope in all tests of times. I foresee great gain in supporting this unique venture. I?m looking forwards to more changes in the world of nursing and hope that this development could stir and awaken the hearts of those who too desire CHANGE and IMPROVEMENT. More power pod.RN!!

Culture can be referred to the belief, knowledge and behavior that are being practice by group of people. Relating this to the health practices of Filipino, there are still a lot of misconceptions that leads to a wrong practice in attending for oneself. A process of transformation- making something different from what was practiced before; something NEW and CREATIVE must be observed. Media has a great influence to every individual and has a great impact in our society. I greatly appreciate the program ?pod.RN? for keeping the people in the right path through providing correct information when it comes to HEALTH. And thank you for leading and responding to the need of our society. Congratulations and keep sailing!
