FDA Guidelines for Medical Product Information Online

SisyphisImageSearching for medical product information online is generally a frustrating experience with the occasional gem of discovery.

The Internet is the newest “wild west” with seemingly little to no regulation of content.

Because online information can and should be a valuable source of medical product information, the FDA has issued a set of guidelines for (i) medical product information in limited space formats (think Twitter) and (ii) fixing incorrect medical product information online.

With so many independent sponsored sites of medical product information online, the task to “clean up” the internet is immense and well beyond the scope of these first guidelines.

Is it a good first step or an impossible task?
