dc.description.abstractWhile most agree that it is important for patients to have information about their health, and population based surveys of the Australian public show that General Practitioners (GPs) remain the most frequent health information source, people are increasingly exposed to health information from mainstream media sources such as the Internet and television.1,2 The quality and accuracy of that information can have a major impact on patient awareness and compliance, and in broader terms affect delivery and access to effective health care, as well as the development of health care policy.3,4 This RESEARCH ROUNDup explores recent reports about the ways in which Australians obtain health information, the quality of that information, and reviews the responsibility of GPs in responding and contributing to that information.en
