Research on Quality of Health Videos: Healthcare Professionals Required
Luis Fernández-Luque, Secretary of the IMIA Social Media Working Group and a PhD student at the Northern Research Institute and Tromsø Telemedicine Laboratory, Tromsø, Norway is seeking healthcare professionals who would be willing to assist in research into the quality of health videos available on YouTube.
as you know to find online health resources is a very challenging task due to the overwhelming amount of resources and the bogus information. As part of my PhD research and in collaboration with researchers at the University of Minnesota (USA) I am looking at different techniques to find relevant health videos for health consumers.
I need the help of healthcare professionals to assess the quality of health videos using different techniques. If you are a healthcare professional and interested to participate in the study please follow the instructions in the link below. Your participation will consist on watching 7 videos from YouTube and answering some questions about them.
The study is an ongoing collaboration with Prof. Genevieve Melton-Meaux – Institute of Health Informatics, University of Minnesota and Prof. Joseph A. Kostan – Computer Science Department, University of Minnesota.
Please only send the link to healthcare professionals and do not publish it on Twitter or Facebook.
For any questions about the research, please contact Luis directly:
