QUALITY OF INFORMATION ON HEALTH WEBSITES: A LOOK AT THE PHYSIOTHERAPY
UM OLHAR PARA A FISIOTERAPIA
The access to information made possible by the Internet, is currently an important source of
dissemination of knowledge. How often do we access the internet daily? What information do we seek,
and what is the quantity and quality of the answers we find? However, in the case of health, the quality
of the information available for access must be considered. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the
information quality on health websites that present information on respiratory physiotherapy. For this,
the authors assumed the role of specialists in information quality. Using a questionnaire of three
dimensions (Content, Design and Technique), elaborated based on previous studies, evaluated the
information quality of websites that bring information on the theme "respiratory physiotherapy". In the
end, it was verified, among other aspects, that there is a deficiency in the sites in relation to the
credibility of the content made available, the authors and their credentials are not presented, as the
texts do not use links for content targeting and do not present the references bibliographies consulted.
