3. What do you consider disadvantages regarding patient questionnaires?
4. Have you ever wished to present a paper, e.g. a blood pressure or nutrition diary, to your doctor or nurse? If so, how have you delivered it to them? Do you know how the paper was dealt with afterwards? OR Have your patients wanted to present you his/her blood pressure or nutrition diary or any questionnaire? If so, how have they delivered it to you?
5. What do you consider to be the best way to fill a patient questionnaire/diary? If needed, specify whether online or on paper, independently or with a doctor/nurse.

10. Have you yourself read any of the health records regarding your doctor’s visits or investigation results through the patient portal? If so, was it easy to find and understand the document? If you have not, then what has prevented it (have not been to the doctor, have not been informed about it, did not find it, or other)? OR Do you use the health records in the central health information system during your clinical work? What do you think of the system in general?
