Web Sites

The world wide web has exploded as a source of health information including a wealth of information about adolescent medicine and general medical topics. This section reviews the following:

  1. How to subscribe to SAM and College listserv groups
  2. Tips on health Web searching
  3. Best sites for browsing
  4. Best sites to get statistical and other information

P.1130

 

How to subscribe to the SAM and College listserv groups

An electronic mailing list (listserv) is a group of individuals interested in an area, who can post questions and comments and receive responses to these questions, as well as in all the posts that are listed. This is a wonderful format for communicating information and asking questions—clinical, educational, research, or administrative. However, when you are on a listserv, you may receive several to 50 or more e-mails per day depending on the volume of posts to a particular listserv. It is recommended that users learn how to use the “delete” button quickly.

SAM ListServ (SAM-L)

The Society for Adolescent Medicine maintains its own listserv. Through this listserv, SAM members and other health care professionals interested in adolescent medicine and adolescent's health issues can share ideas. If an individual who is not a SAM member wants to join the listserv, he/she should first contact the SAM office at sam@adolescenthealth.org or 816.224.8010 and provide brief work contact information.

To subscribe to this free communication mode, you perform the following steps:

  • Send a message to sam-L@adolescenthealth.org. The message should only say subscribe SAM-L “your name”(e.g., subscribe SAM-L “Mary Jones”).
  • When you want to post to the Listserv, e-mail to sam-l@adolescenthealth.org (this is an “L,” not the number 1 after “sam”).
  • When you receive a Listserv message and you want to provide an answer and/or share your thoughts with the sender, do notclick on the Reply button; if you do, everyone on the Listserv message will receive your reply. Instead, note the sender's e-mail address, and send a new message using that address only.
  • To unsubscribe, one needs to contact the SAM office at sam@adolescenthealth.org or 816.224.8010 asking to be removed from the system.

Tips on Health Web Searching

One can gain a wealth of information and data quickly utilizing a concise approach to searching the Web.

Web Searching

Some of the best Web search tools include www.google.com and www.yahoo.com.Google.com uses an approach that combines finding the keywords and the utilization pattern of the Web sites by users. In practice, this means that in most cases, the most useful sites are found early in the search. In addition to putting down the keyword, it is useful to add a second keyword that may help refine the search. For example, you can search on gonorrhea. In fact, with the Google searcher, the top two sites are a CDC and an NIH site on gonorrhea. If you want CDC information, you could narrow this search by placing both gonorrhea and CDC in the search area. With a Web search tool, you are likely to find hundreds of “hits.” Each hit is usually titled, has a brief description, and has the Web address. These can be very helpful to glance at quickly to help you narrow which “hits” to explore. In health sites, the addresses often lead to either government sites, academic centers, commercial health sites, commercial product sites (pharmaceutical companies and others), and private health care provider sites. Looking at the address can help you determine if you want to explore that site or not. There are some important questions to ask yourself about each site:

  • Is the advice provided by qualified trained medical professionals?
  • How old is the information? Often a site can look great, but the information was last updated 3 or 4 years ago.
  • Who pays for the site? Is this a commercial for-profit site?
  • Do you need to register or provide personal information? Make sure you read the privacy information before giving out such information.
  • Where do these links go to (as outlined previously).

Health Portals

There are also some specific health finders and portals that can help in finding health information. These include the following:

  • www.healthfinder.gov. Health searching tool from the NIH.
