Amelia Burke-Garcia: Online Communication About Prostate Cancer Generates Offline Conversations
Amelia Burke-Garcia, Ph.D., of Westat’s Center for Digital Strategy & Research, has co-authored a new journal article on online communication about prostate cancer.
“The "Real World"? Effects of Online Communication about Prostate Cancer on Offline Communication” explores how participants in an online prostate cancer community translate their online conversations into offline ones.
Results noted that these offline conversations are primarily information-oriented. Health care providers are not primary receivers of this information, which may affect treatment and care.
