Dementia Family Caregivers' Mobile App Use

Start: June 2019
End: May 2021
Enrollment: 110

What Is This Study About?

Mobile applications have great potential to improve health outcomes for family caregivers of people with dementia. However, research has shown that these caregivers are less likely to use mobile apps to seek medical information than the general public. Researchers will study these dementia family caregivers' current mobile app use and factors related to their intent to adopt apps for their own chronic disease self-management. This study is recruiting nationwide.
