abstract
Patients, parents, healthcare providers, and the public are inundated by a constant flow of information from myriad sources, both reliable and unreliable. This bounty of information is ever-expanding, along with opportunities to disseminate it online further and more quickly. Some of the information is credible, and some of it is bunk. We need a way to filter out the meaningless or harmful information so that we may heed the high-quality health information that can have a positive impact on our lives. On September 22, 2009, the Access to Credible Genetics Resources Network, a cooperative agreement funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Grant #5U10DD525036), held a meeting to examine these issues as they pertain to the creation and assessment of health information. ATCG and this meeting help individuals, families, and healthcare providers determine when to "Trust It or Trash It?"
