HELPFUL RESOURCE: How to find Health Information on the Internet

The Internet is a global network of computers and its most commonly used application is the World Wide Web, consisting of millions of pages of information. The sheer size of the Internet and relative lack of organization means that it is not the best place to find everything! Often information can be found more quickly in a reference book, through a periodical index database search, or by contacting an expert individual.

This module provides an overview of the resources available via the World Wide Web and how to search for health information effectively.
