This is a continuation of the CAFE Health survey. ( Other posts in this series can be found either by clicking on “CAFE Project” in the Tag Cloud or by clicking on “GrumbleSmiles Trust” in the Topics list)
Given that 80% of this group use computers and a high level have chronic health issues, it is perhaps surprising that only 50% have used them to find out more about their health. That said, the internet is not always easy to navigate your way around, if you want to be sure you are accessing reliable information.
A few more people have accessed voluntary health groups to find out more. Specialist Health Groups usually provide a wealth of leaflets and advice and much of this is freely available on the internet.
FOOTNOTE:- An APP that provides links to sites recommended by the local Health service would be more trustworthy and more easily accessible. There will also be local branches in Coventry of health organisations related to specific conditions and links to these would be useful.
