Super 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:

  • How experts research new drugs and treatments before they reach the market
  • How to evaluate online information and check the credentials of medical specialists
  • Where to find drug and device regulations in the U.S. and overseas
  • Why the Net is the best—and worst—source of information on alternative medicine
Super Searchers on Health & Medicine is the fourth title in the new "Super Searchers" series from CyberAge Books (an imprint of Information Today, Inc.), edited by noted cybrarian Reva Basch. As a reader bonus, “The Super Searchers Web Page” provides a hyperlinked directory to the most important information sources for online users, including over 180 health and medical resources recommended in Super Searchers on Health & Medicine.
