Health on the Net Foundation now accredits MedicalEducator

Medical Educator is now accredited by the leading surveyor of web based health information, namely the Health on the Net (HON) foundation.

An example of the HON Code logo, soon to be displayed on our homepage. The HON Code allows users to check a sites authenticity through the HON website.

The HON foundation have reviewed the site and found it to be compliant with their 12 ethical principles which they have been applying over the past 12 years, leading them to them being the most recognised and one of the most respected sites to search for web authenticity. We hope to continue to abide by their 8 key principles (amongst others) namely:

  1. Authority
  2. Complementarity
  3. Confidentiality
  4. Attribution
  5. Justification
  6. Professionalism
  7. Transparency of Financing
  8. Advertising

We have made some minor alterations to the site at the request of the HON, we continue to respect their authority, and the status of our membership will soon be available via our homepage.
