PIF has launched new web content on judging and assuring quality in health information.
The better the quality of health information, the more useful, relevant and accessible it is, and the more effective it will be in encouraging shared decision making, self care, long-term condition management and informed choice.
As health information becomes increasingly recognised as an integral part of healthcare, the need to be able to understand, identify and measure quality has grown.
There is currently no single source for judging or assuring quality in health information. PIF’s web content reviews key issues, and brings together a range of examples of the kinds of resources that might help.
Different resources suit different situations, and not every resource will be relevant to you. The aim of this content is to provide a central location for this information to help you easily find things that most suit your needs.
The web content covers:
- Top tips
- Quality and accessible health information
- Quality marks, endorsements and awards
- Quality guidance and standards
- Tools for assuring quality and useful resources
- Demands for quality
