Durante una pandemia, es primordial distinguir las características de la información que es de calidad. Así como también distinguir que información se debe evitar, por ejemplo, se debe evitar información que trata de influenciar los puntos de vista de los lectores.

Cuando la información es de calidad, existen las siguientes características:

  • Exactitud: : Información que se basa en metodología científica con referencias a fuentes informativas que se pueden verificar.
  • Autoridad: Información que proviene de profesionistas con experiencia y de organizaciones reconocidas.
  • Imarcialidad: Información que no trata de influenciar puntos de vista y de fuentes imparciales.
  • Actualidad: Información que fue actualizada recientemente, con enlaces activos y fechas de actualización recientes.
  • Cobertura: Información completa y con citas de fuentes adicionales para más detalles.

Es por esto que la Network of the National Library of Medicine South Central Region, el All of Us Program y la National Association of Hispanic Nurses, han creado una alianza para ofrecer una sesión informativa y gratuita acerca este tema.

During a pandemic, it is crucial to know the characteristics of quality information. We must also distinguish information that must be avoided; for example, it is important to avoid information that comes from sources that try to influence the reader’s point of view.

The following are characteristics of quality information:

  • Accuracy: Information is based on scientific methodology with references to verifiable information sources.
  • Authority: Information that comes from experienced professionals and from well-known organizations.
  • Impartiality: Information that does not try to influence points of view and that comes from unbiased sources.
  • Updated: Information that is current and includes the date of the most recent update, and has active links.
  • Coverage: Information that is complete and references additional sources for further details.

The Network of the National Library of Medicine South Central Region, the All of Us Program, and National Association of Hispanic Nurses have teamed up to offer an informative and free webinar covering this topic. Please join us to learn about the All of Us program and the importance of obtaining quality, reliable health information. This meeting will introduce information sources in Spanish that are easy to understand and access. Information about the All of Us program will also be provided.
