Much of the popular - and academic - discourse about public attitudes to health and the need for more effective health communication have assumed what Wynne (1991) .has called : a 'cognitive deficit' communication model. In which it is assumed that lay people lack knowledge and awareness. An alternative 'social constructivist' approach to ordinary people's knowledge of health gives much greater emphasis to the often well developed, but Informal experiences which people bring to public Issues. This paper reports a pilot Investigation In which we explore the use of computer-based methodologies to document the ways adults transform experts' knowledge.
