Consumer and Patient Health

For Patients, Their Families, and the Public: 
The Health Sciences Library has created this guide to provide you with credible resources to locate health information. Most of the resources on this page are ranked as Top Ten medical websites by the Consumer and Patient Health Information Section (CAPHIS) of the Medical Library Association, and have been evaluated for credibility, sponsorship/authorship, content, audience, currency, disclosure, purpose, links, design, interactivity, and disclaimers. Librarians are also available to assist you with searching for additional information. 

For Healthcare Professionals:
This guide provides resources for consumers and patients and their families. If you're looking for resources to recommend to your patients and their families, this is a place to start. If you're looking for information for your own research purposes, please use our other guides and resources. The Health Sciences Library and LGH provide access to many subscription databases that provide patient education resources. The librarians at the Health Sciences Library are able to help you navigate any of the databases.
