Seeking Health Information Online: The Moderating Effects of Problematic Situations on User Intention

are a few studies that consider the impact of situational factors, but they either take situational factors as the research background or just investigated the direct impact of situational factors on search intention. For instance, Wu and Li (2015) analyzed the elderly’s diversity of emotion and cognition, and their different ways of dealing with information in online information retrieval processes in different health situations via user experiment, questionnaire survey, and interview methods. But this study only considered different situations as the research
