Assessing medical web sites

By including a web site address within this list Homecall Doctor is not endorsing any of the information published on it.  There are a number of ways in which the credibility of a web site can be evaluated.  This includes verifying that the information has been published by a reputable source and that it has been recently updated.  Assessing whether the content is fact or opinion and, if factual, that it is appropriately referenced is important.

 

It is important to note that even when the above criteria are met information obtained from the Internet does not replace the advice of a doctor. Many of these web sites contain anecdotal rather than evidence based information and therefore medication / product recommendations should be should be treated with caution. 

If you have any more questions about the information on these websites or anything else about your condition then you should discuss them with your doctor.
