Evaluating Internet Health Information: A Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine

I had a quick look at this tutorial on MedlinePlus (National Library of Medicine, U.S.) and thought it had some very good content. This would be useful for all health science staff and students to take a look at.

"This tutorial teaches you how to evaluate the health information that you find on the Web. It is about 16 minutes long.You need a Flash plug-in, version 6 or above, to view it. If you do not have Flash, you will be prompted to obtain a free download of the software before you start.
The tutorial runs automatically, but you can also use the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen to go forward, backward, pause, or start over." (MedlinePlus, NLM)
