Interactive access to instructional materials and educational information is now possible by means of a wide range of relatively low-cost technologies. This means that many new and exciting educational applications of computerbased learning are starting to become available. This paper therefore discusses some new applications of computer-based learning within the domain of medicine. In particular, we consider its role as an agent for ‘patient education’. Our approach to the creation of ‘patient education systems’ is discussed and then illustrated by means of a case study approach involving a recent study that we have made in relation to female urinary incontinence.
