The information journey
A journey is defined as “the act of travelling from one place to another” (Oxford English Dictionary, 2018). When we think of a journey, various stages come to mind - for example, the preparation for the experience, the experience itself and how experiences could help if/when was to be repeated. The concept of the journey can be applied to different scenarios. In learning, Kolb's experiential learning theory (Kolb, 1984) worked on two levels: a four-stage cycle of learning and four separate learning styles. He viewed learning as the process whereby knowledge was created through the transformation of experience. Similarly, within a health environment, the increased emphasis on the personal health journey recognises that individual treatment plans, informed through personalised advice, empowers people to take ownership of recovery and maintaining good health. Irrespective of the focus of the information journey, the quantity and quality of associated information and its interpretation are pivotal in maximising the achievable outcomes.
