Our first article is online and available

Roger Watson, Editor

I am very pleased to announce our first article to be published is by Kim et al. (2104), titled: 'A secondary data analysis of Internet use in caregivers of persons with dementia'.

The article is based on a survey called the National Alliance for Caregiving telephone survey, conducted in the USA and gathering 258 responses.  Using structural equation modelling the analysis showed, in the words of the authors: 'Caregivers with poor health reported higher levels of caregiver stress appraised, which was associated with more Internet use for health-related purposes.'
