Abstract

The Internet has revolutionized the way in which both lay-people and health care professionals seek out and research information regarding health care topics and specific disease conditions.1 A recent report states that approximately 80% of adult Internet users have conducted searches online for health or medical information.2 With increasing accessibility to the internet and rising familiarity with search engines, this percentage continues to grow. Aside from accessibility and convenience, the Internet is superior to most paper-based medical resources due to the ease of updating information to reflect the most timely and current data.
