Developing an Instrument to Measure eHealth Literacy
The purpose of this study is to develop and conduct a field test of an instrument with sufficient measurement properties to measure the eHealth literacy of patients living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The objective of this research will be accomplished by pursuing three specific aims: 1) Develop a new rating scale to measure the eHealth literacy of adults living with COPD; and 2) Administer one field test of the new eHealth literacy scale among a random sample of Floridians living with COPD who are enrolled in the Consent2Share program; and 3) Examine the reliability of scores produced by the scale and provide validity evidence for its use among older adults living with COPD.
