Abstract

Objective: The internet has become one of the primary resources for patients to obtain health-related information. While the internet continues to evolve in terms of coverage and technology, concerns regarding the quality of available information have arisen. We aimed to investigate the quality of health-related information on Turkish-language medical websites by comparing it to that of English-language medical websites, in which the subject has long been studied.
