Abstract: Weblogs, also known as "blogs," are an emerging writing tool that are fun and easy to use, Internet based, and hold promise for promoting writing skills for health profession students. Lewis (2004) reports "blogs" as innovative pedagogical aids for students studying different disciplines, such as medicine, business and journalism. The Institute of Medicine (2003) recommends healthcare professionals be trained to use informatics in order to "communicate, manage knowledge, mitigate error, and support decision making using information technology" (p. 46). Healthcare professionals require a basic understanding of general informatics competencies, such as word processing, retrieving data from the Internet, communicating via email, listservs, and file transfers. However, the use of "blogs," as educational tools, is not well documented by health profession educators.
