One of the major issues that exists for any information-based Internet site – such as a HealthInfoNet – is that of ensuring the quality of materials. Any individual or organisation can place material on the Internet and, unlike the case with refereed journals, there has been no way of assuring users of the quality of material on a site. The HealthInfoNet is the first site of its type – that we are aware of – to have addressed this issue through the establishment of a network of Consultants.
HealthInfoNet Consultants are leading experts within various areas of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. A key role of Consultants is the peer-review function, which ensures users of the quality of our specially-developed summaries, overviews and reviews. The HealthInfoNet Consultants serve as an informal reference group by providing guidance in their individual areas of expertise. They assist also in the identification and collection of other materials.
