Abstract [en]

People with health conditions and their significant others are increasingly turning to the Internet for health information. Accessing health information is, after email and search engine use, the third most common Internet activity (Pew Internet. 2011 ). For people facing a health decision, Internet is the second most influential source of information after clinician advice (Couper et al., 2010). Searching the Internet for a significant other’s health condition is also common (Pew Internet, 2011 ). However, clients do not always methodically analyse the quality of health information accessed on the Internet. For this reason, quality of Internet health information has been widely studied and has been found to vary greatly (for a systematic review, see Eysenbach, Powell, Kuss, & Sa, 2002). In audiology, it is largely unknown whether adults with hearing impairment and their significant others are informed or misinformed by the hearing impairment information they access on the Internet. This study aims to evaluate the Internet hearing information available to people with hearing impairment and their significant others. More specifically, the study is assessing the quality and readability of English-language websites available as of 2011. This study’s methods and emerging results are presented and discussed.
