Six criteria to measure the reliability of health information on the Internet

Six criteria to measure the reliability of health information on the Internet | Doctor en Medicina | Scoop.it

Dr. Cox writes:

 

nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/evaluatinghealthinformation.html which includes a tutorial on accessing and evaluating information on the web. There are some questions you should ask yourself any time you evaluate a site:

 

1. Who sponsors the website? Going to a trusted organization is a good way to access good reliable information such as the federal government (nih.gov), an academic institution (Dartmouth University), or a nationally recognized society (American Cancer Society).

 

2. Who wrote the information? Does the site have an editorial board or a panel of experts who wrote and reviewed the information? Does it reference other national sites or recently published peer reviewed articles in well-known medical journals or site obscure references and individuals' experiences?

 

3. Is the information recent? The time medical information is relevant shortens daily, make sure you check several up-to-date sites.

 

4. Does the site have a privacy policy? Be wary of any site that asks you for personal information or wants to sign you up for regular mailings. Who will they share your information with? Perhaps companies selling products for this condition?

 

5. The site makes claims that seem too good to be true; chances they are? Be sure to check several sites. Seeing confirming information on several trusted sites should give you comfort that the information you are seeing is probably reliable.

 

6. Make sure to check information with your physician. Chances are your physician might be able to direct you to reliable sites for information on specific conditions. They will also help you sort through the information you obtain to make sense of it for you.

1. ¿Quienes son los sponsors? ¿son fiables¿, ¿son instituciones?

2. ¿Quien la escribe?

3. ¿Es reciente?

4. ¿la Web tiene política de privacidad?

5. ¿La web da informaciones demasiado buenas para ser verdad? , ¿es sensacionalista?

6. Enséñasela a tu médico, es quien tiene el criterio necesario para saber si es fiable o no

New free iPad medical app shows future of surgical patient education

New free iPad medical app shows future of surgical patient education | Doctor en Medicina | Scoop.it

Wrist Repair comes from newcomers Meditech and offers a fascinating insight into the future of surgical patient education apps.

 

Patient education apps are a new developing subset of the medical app industry.

 

Improving patient education is essential to better patient outcomes and overall satisfaction.

 

Wrist Repair is fundamentally a very simple app. Its sole purpose is to show patients the steps required when undergoing Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) of a distal radius fracture.

 

The main essence of the app is a 3D animation, with more. For starters, the animation is a complete 3D model so the patient can move the camera to whatever view they like throughout the procedure.

 

Furthermore, they can select one of three different views:

An impressive 3D reconstruction of the wrist (not 100% anatomically accurate but easily more than sufficient for a patient) in an operating room


A view purely of the bones


An x-ray view (which is very impressive)


The camera can be moved using simple, intuitive touch gestures and zoomed using pinch to zoom.

The Difficult Airway App

The Difficult Airway App | Doctor en Medicina | Scoop.it

The right drugs, the right doses, the right way!

This app rapidly and easily selects the right drugs for RSI, automatically adjusting for obesity and various complicating conditions. Pediatric dosing and equipment selection is a snap using the Broselow-Luten color system or the child's estimated weight.

mlearning In Medical Schools: How the iPad is Changing Medical Education

mlearning In Medical Schools: How the iPad is Changing Medical Education | Doctor en Medicina | Scoop.it

When Stanford announced they were supplying iPads to their medical students in 2010, they become one of the first medical schools to begin the transition to mobile learning. But now, the number of medical schools across the US handing out iPads with stethoscopes to their first year students is increasing, as the cost to supply the device is becoming far less of an obstacle once students and educators experience the doors that open with the device in hand.

Simulation-based medical education in clinical skills laboratory.

Clinical skills laboratories have been established in medical institutions as facilities for simulation-based medical education (SBME).

 

SBME is believed to be superior to the traditional style of medical education from the viewpoint of the active and adult learning theories. SBME can provide a learning cycle of debriefing and feedback for learners as well as evaluation of procedures and competency.

 

SBME offers both learners and patients a safe environment for practice and error. In a full-environment simulation, learners can obtain not only technical skills but also non-technical skills, such as leadership, team work, communication, situation awareness, decision-making, and awareness of personal limitations. SBME is also effective for integration of clinical medicine and basic medicine.

 

In addition, technology-enhanced simulation training is associated with beneficial effects for outcomes of knowledge, skills, behaviors, and patient-related outcomes. To perform SBME, effectively, not only simulators including high-fidelity mannequin-type simulators or virtual-reality simulators but also full-time faculties and instructors as professionals of SBME are essential in a clinical skills laboratory for SBME.

 

Clinical skills laboratory is expected to become an integrated medical education center to achieve continuing professional development, integrated learning of basic and clinical medicine, and citizens' participation and cooperation in medical education.
