Author information

Health Sciences Library, New York, NY, USA.


Based on criteria for assessing the quality of health information extracted from a review of the literature, we expanded the DISCERN instrument by adding 14 questions. New questions addressed language of the web-based health information resource, level of readability of the resource, and usability of the web page or portal for the resource.
