Searchers on Health & Medicine:
The Online Secrets of Top Health & Medical Researchers
New book reveals expert sources and strategies for using the Internet to find medical information
Medford, NJ, September 18, 2000 — CyberAge Books, an imprint of Information Today, Inc. (ITI), has announced the publication of Susan M. Detwiler's new book, Super Searchers on Health & Medicine: The Online Secrets of Top Health & Medical Researchers.
The book features author Detwiler’s interviews with 10 leading medical researchers, including medical librarians, clinical researchers, health information specialists, and physicians. Detwiler, an independent medical information specialist, asked these “Super Searchers” to share their strategies for finding, evaluating, and using online information for the benefit of consumers who want to use the Internet to answer health and medical questions of their own.
More than 25 million Americans use the Internet to research diseases, treatments, and related information, according to recent estimates. A 1999 survey by Health On The Net found that while 93 percent of respondents think Net-based healthcare information is valuable, more than half of them find such information difficult to find, evaluate, and utilize. Super Searchers on Health & Medicine seeks to address this issue.
The health and medical Super Searchers discuss these topics and more:
