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. Acompáñenos a una sesión donde aprenderá acerca del programa All of Us y sobre la importancia de obtener información de salud confiable y de alta calidad. En esta sesión se darán a conocer fuentes de información en español, fáciles de entender y al alcance de sus manos. Además, se dará a conocer información detallada acerca del programa All of Us.
