The Internet, especially the World Wide Web, has a wealth of health-related information for patients and families that anyone with a computer can locate, read, and use. “By 2005, 88.5 million adults will use the Internet to find health information, shop for health products, and communicate with payors and providers through online channels” (Cyber Dialogue, May 23, 2000, p. 1). Many types of health-related information are available on the Internet. Many commercial health-related Internet sites offer the “3 C’s,” content, commerce, and connectivity. And are quickly adding the 4th “C” communication. A growing concern among healthcare professionals is the quality and the overabundance of patient education information available on the Internet. Certainly it is possible for nurses to use the Internet for patient education, but new skills and knowledge are needed by staff and advanced practice nurses who incorporate this technology into their practice. Likewise, nurse administrators must learn what to look for in health-related web sites should their organization decide to co-brand with a commercial web site. And finally, nurse educators need to be able to teach students how to critique web sites as new graduates begin their professional careers. This presentation will briefly review the evolution of patient education to the Internet, provide a review of the Joint Commission on Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) Patient and Family Education Standards, describe organizations promulgating quality standards for consumer health-related web sites, and conclude with distribution of the “The Nurses e-care Evaluation,” a checklist for nurses who chose to enhance their patient education efforts by using resources readily available on the Internet.
