  主要内容:

  Better chronic condition management and greater social integration are effective means to contribute to active aging. As the Internet and mobile computing technology become increasingly prevalent, they offer great potentials to improve chronic disease self-management and social integration. Older adults, however, are much less likely to use such technology because of their anxiety about their abilities and lack of computer skills. This presentation will introduce the Intergenerational Mobile Technology Opportunities Program (IMTOP) designed to motivate and train older adults with diabetes to use the technology.  It will also discuss the IMTOP research design and the preliminary outcomes between the intervention and wait-list control groups of the older adult participants.
