Virtual Pediatric Hospital: CQQA: Checklist for Evaluating Health Information on the Internet

Evaluating Health Information on the Internet

Name of the site: __________________________________________________

Site address (URL): ________________________________________________

The topic you want information on: ____________________________________

Signs of a good website:

Does the Web site....

_____ tell who the author is?

_____ give the author's training?

_____ give the sources of its information?

_____ give information similar to what your doctor has told you?

_____ tell when the information was last updated?

_____ recommend that you talk to your doctor about the information?

_____ warn you that the information should not be used alone for diagnosis or treatment?

_____ come from an organization you trust?

_____ tell you who its sponsors are?

_____ tell you if it is selling something?

_____ tell you how it will protect any information it asks you about yourself?

Remember, it is always a good idea to talk to your doctor about health information you've read on the Internet. Print the information out and take it to your doctor or have your doctor look at the Web site. Your doctor should be able to tell you what information is correct and what parts are not correct.
