1Jones, L.M. ; Wright, K.D. ; Wallace, M.K. ; Veinot, T.: "Take an opportunity whenever you get it" : information sharing among African-American women with hypertension.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 69(2018) no.1, S.168-171.
Abstract: Nearly half of African-American women have hypertension, which increases their risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke. A plethora of consumer health information products and services exist to inform people with hypertension and to promote self-management among them. Promotion of information sharing by African-American women represents a promising, culturally applicable strategy for consumer health information services focused on hypertension self-management. Yet how African-American women share hypertension information with others is unclear. The purpose of this qualitative, descriptive study was to examine practices of information sharing in African-American women with hypertension. Thirteen women (mean age?=?73, SD?=?9.87) participated in one of 2 focus groups held at an urban community health center. Thematic analysis revealed that the women shared information about how they self-managed their blood pressure i) with female family members and friends, ii) about ways in which they adapted self-management strategies to work for them, iii) mostly in group settings, and iv) because they wanted to prevent others from suffering and reinforce their own knowledge about hypertension self-management. New findings emerged regarding assessing "readiness" for information. Study findings will be used to inform the design of an information-sharing intervention to support self-management of hypertension in African-American women.
