Many people have discovered that clicking on a favorite search engine and entering a disease or medical condition can often result in thousands, even millions, of “hits.” This can be discouraging. This class will explore ideas for filtering the available web pages to a manageable number. We will review general health information finding tools such as MedlinePlus, Healthfinder, and the Medical Library Association’s “Top Health Websites.” We will cover techniques to help determine if the information you find is as credible, timely, and useful as it looks.
