Health Information Websites as Online Learning Content
Have you ever visited the internet instead of a doctor? Many people look to website information for healthcare learning content. Such health issues range from patchy skin to a serious illness. But how reliable is the learning content in health-related websites, and how can you be sure? Is there any way to gauge the quality of health information on the internet?
Various organizations have developed criteria to help those seeking health learning content to evaluate websites. One of the first, and most widely used, is the Health on the Net Foundation (HON). One thing HON does to help internet users is provide a seal. Webmasters who want to display the HONcode seal on their websites must request evaluation by the organization. In turn, HON has the right to withdraw the seal if the learning content in the website no longer meets the code standards.
