  • Ecuadorian Cancer Patients' Preference for Information and Communication Technologies: Cross-Sectional Study. [Journal Article]
  • JMJ Med Internet Res 2018 Feb 20; 20(2):e50
  • Cherrez Ojeda I, Vanegas E, … Simancas D
  • CONCLUSIONS: WhatsApp, SMS, and email are effective and widely used ICTs that can promote communication between cancer patients and physicians. According to age range, new ICTs such as Facebook are still emerging. Future studies should investigate how to develop and promote ICT-based resources more effectively to engage the outcomes of cancer patients. The widespread use of ICTs narrows the gap between cancer patients with restricted socioeconomic conditions and those with wealth and easily available technological means, thereby opening up new possibilities in low-income countries.
  • Digital Health Interventions for Adults With Type 2 Diabetes: Qualitative Study of Patient Perspectives on Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. [Journal Article]
  • JMJ Med Internet Res 2018 Jan 29; 20(2):e40
  • Pal K, Dack C, … Murray E
  • CONCLUSIONS: By focusing on medical management and information provision, existing health care services and education programs may not be adequately meeting all the needs of patients with type 2 diabetes. DHIs have the potential to improve access to DSME and behavioral support and extend the range of content offered by health services to fit with a wider range of patient needs. Features that could help DHIs address some of the unmet needs described by participants in this study included placing an emphasis on emotional and role management, being available at all times, having up-to-date evidence-based guidance for patients, and providing access to peer-generated and professional advice.
  • Users, Uses, and Effects of Social Media in Dietetic Practice: Scoping Review of the Quantitative and Qualitative Evidence. [Review]
  • JMJ Med Internet Res 2018 Feb 20; 20(2):e55
  • Dumas AA, Lapointe A, Desroches S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Research on social media in dietetic practice is at its infancy, but it is growing fast. So far, this field of research has targeted few social media platforms, most of which were assessed in multiple-component interventions for weight management among overweight or obese adults. Trials isolating the effects and mechanisms of action of specific social media platforms are needed to draw conclusions regarding the effectiveness of those tools to support dietetic practice. Future studies should address barriers and facilitators related to the use of social media written by RDs and should explore how to make these tools useful for RDs to reach health consumers to improve health through diet.
  • Attitudes Toward e-Mental Health Services in a Community Sample of Adults: Online Survey. [Journal Article]
  • JMJ Med Internet Res 2018 Feb 19; 20(2):e59
  • March S, Day J, … Ireland M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite generally low reported preferences toward e-mental health services, intentions to access these services are higher, raising the question of how to best encourage translation of intentions into behavior (ie, actual use of programs). Strategies designed to ease people into new Internet-based mental health programs (to enhance confidence and familiarity) may be important for increasing the likelihood that they will return to such programs later.
