Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of a web-based computer-assisted education (CO-ED) system versus searching the Internet for learning about hypertension. Twenty-two older adults (age 45+) in Baltimore, MD were enrolled. Analysis of pre- and post- knowledge scores indicates a significant (15%) improvement among CO-ED users as opposed to Internet users.
