Resumen

TOMAS, Catarina Cardoso; QUEIROS, Paulo Joaquim Pina  y  FERREIRA, Teresa de Jesus Rodrigues. Analysis of the psychometric properties of the portuguese version of an eHealth literacy assessment tool. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2014, vol.serIV, n.2, pp.19-28. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV14004.

Background: Electronic information sources play a key role in health information contexts and are privileged resources for the entire population, particularly for adolescents. Aims: To validate the eHealth Literacy Scale for the Portuguese population; and to identify the levels of eHealth literacy among adolescents, as well as the association between these levels and socio-demographic variables. Methodology: A quantitative, descriptive-correlational, retrospective and cross-sectional study was conducted using a non-probability sample of 1215 adolescents. Results: The scale showed good internal consistency and mostly moderate, statistically significant inter-item correlations. Gender differences were found in some items. Moreover, adolescents in higher grade levels reported being unaware of where to find health resources on the internet when compared to those in lower grade levels. Conclusion: This sample of adolescents showed good levels of eHealth literacy. Including eHealth literacy promotion programs in the high school curriculum will allow young people to acquire the necessary skills required for an informed decision making and promote their health in the future.

Palabras clave : health literacy; internet; adolescent.
