The purpose of this research project was to create a guide for nutrition and health professionals to improve their ability to identify and use credible, science-based resources on the Internet. Specifically, a Qualtrics questionnaire assessed the experience and knowledge of nutrition and health professionals that assisted in the selection of the Nutrition and Health Professional Review Committee (NHPRC). A pre-questionnaire was sent to NHPRC members assessing how they determined if a website or resource on the Internet was credible and science-based. Their post-evaluation of the final guide was comprised of eight rating components. Response categories suggested that the NHPRC members used different techniques to determine credibility of Internet information. Overall, they supported development of a guide.
