A secondary data analysis of Internet use in caregivers of persons with dementia and published in Nursing Open looks at internet use by carers of people with dementia. In the words of the authors: 'Caregivers with poor health reported higher levels of caregiver stress appraised, which was associated with more Internet use for health-related purposes. It is required to develop effective Internet-based resources to meet the needs of highly stressed caregivers of persons with dementia.'
