Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 10:30 AM
The use of computers, the Internet, and mobile technology (e-Health) for health care communication and health promotion holds great promise for improving health outcomes. The presentations of this session cover the following topics related to technology and aging: surrogate decision making for the Facebook generation, a novel strategy for educating racially and ethnically diverse older adults about their medicines using tailored DVDs, variation in digital communication technology use among low-income, urban-dwelling African-American adults, the digital divide among older adults residing in an urban and suburban metropolitan area, and e-Health for healthy aging (past, present, and future).
Session Objectives: 1. Describe the legal issues involved in the use of social media for surrogate end-of-life decision making. 2. List demographic and socio-economic characteristics among older adults who have never used the Internet.
