Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Innovation in information and communication technology has been transforming health service delivery.

METHODS:

This study aims to compare YouTube against traditional talk-based workshops in delivering dementia knowledge to the Chinese-American population.

RESULTS:

Results reveal that E-mental health has enormous potential; however, for the older Chinese-American ethnic population, talk-based workshop is still more desired in delivering dementia education to targeted age groups.

DISCUSSION:

As YouTube has become a readily available and widely distributed media for prevention and psychoeducational efforts, this study demonstrates the utility of YouTube in delivering dementia knowledge. Nevertheless, viewer appeals need to be addressed by making the first few minutes engaging.
