Palavras chave

Informação em saúde, alfabetização em e-Saúde, mSaúde, adolescentes, saúde móvel, credibilidade, qualidade, informações sobre saúde online

Resumo

A introdução dos smartphones revolucionou a forma como os adolescentes tardios (entre 18 e 21 anos) acessam e usam a Internet. Há uma grande quantidade de informação com apenas um toque, ao mesmo tempo que os celulares e a conectividade com a Internet estão cada vez mais acessíveis. A necessidade de aprender sobre e-Saúde vem ganhando importância entre os adolescentes tardios, já que garante um uso eficaz da informação sobre saúde. Neste estudo realiza-se uma pesquisa com 427 adolescentes tardios para avaliar seus conhecimentos em e-Saúde; suas percepções sobre a qualidade da informação em e-Saúde; o seu nível de confiança e credibilidade em e-Saúde e verificar se a aquisição de informação em saúde através desse meio leva a uma mudança na sua intenção de comportamento. Os resultados mostraram que a maioria dos adolescentes tardios preferiu consultar diversas páginas da web para as suas necessidades de informação em saúde e a maioria preferiu acessar a informação em e-Saúde no seu idioma nativo. Os aplicativos móveis (apps) eram o método menos utilizado para ter acesso às informações em saúde, apesar do alto uso de smartphones. A alfabetização e a credibilidade da e-Saúde previram positivamente a intenção de comportamento, enquanto que a qualidade da informação em saúde não prevê a intenção de comportamento.
