Assessing the Reliability and Quality of Online Uterine Fibroid Embolization Resources
Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, 06/04/2012
Kaicker J et al. – The overall quality of websites for uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is moderate, with important but not serious shortcomings. The best websites provided relevant information about the procedure, benefits/risks, and were interactive. DISCERN scores were compromised by sites failing to provide resources for shared decision–making, additional support, and discussing consequence of no treatment. Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) benchmarks revealed lack of authorship and currency.
