Specifically, our research explores how information sharing behavior through online communities (such as blogs) influences coping strategies among people with chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, depression, etc.
As you know, the Internet is a good way to acquire information and interact with others who share similar health issues. Although many reports on the use and benefits are currently available, few theoretical works are advanced in this regard.
So, we hope that we can test a theoretical explanation, which could be a basis for more attention from government and health care providers regarding online communities.
