Research Paper


This research project aims to investigate the various methods seniors use to in order to access health care information. More specifically, this research focuses on seniors’ information-seeking behaviours in an online environment in order to identify potential obstacles to the retrieval of accurate and accessible health care information. The existing literature indicates that while there is a large body of research and study about the digital inclusion and exclusion of seniors, there is a dearth of information on the same topic when additional demographic factors are applied to seniors.This study focuses upon the marginalized groups of immigrant, Indigenous and rural seniors.
