|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding access and quality of online medicines information. Introduction: With the expansion of the Internet over the years, its uses related to health have greatly increased. Among the most notable of these uses is the searching for health information. Features which promote the Internet for this use include its accessibility, interactivity, social support and anonymity. A major disadvantage of the Internet is the lack of standardised quality systems for online health-related information. This deficiency prompts concerns regarding accuracy, reliability and genuineness of information provided by online sources. Aims: • To determine what online medicines information is available for professionals and the general public • To determine what tools are available to assess the quality of online medicines information • To establish a quality system for online medicines information.|
