      Rizwan Abdul Rasheed Shaikh, Wasundhara A. Bhad
Abstract: Aim: This study aims to find awareness of healthcare practitioners and students about computer based patient education in central India.
Methods: This study is based on questionnaire survey with a list of 8 questions. 250 doctors and medical students belonging to different areas of specialty were selected randomly from four different cities of central India. They filled out a questionnaire. Results: It is found that 100% doctors and 97% students of central India are aware of the use of computer in health science. 96% of all healthcare workers are aware of computer based patient education method, however only 24% of them use the computer based patient education in their practice. 81% of doctors and 86% students agreed about high cost of computer based patient education. 49% doctors and 58% students agreed that patient to patient variations in psychology, socioeconomic status and education are the main reasons because of which computer based patient education is not used by them.
Conclusions: Healthcare practitioners and students of central India are aware of computer based patient education, but majority of them are not using it in their own practice. Hence healthcare practitioners of central India should be encouraged to use it. Undergraduate medical students found less aware about computer based patient education, so increase in awareness of undergraduate students is required in central India.
