Assessing the reliability of online health information is a difficult task for many. The reason for this is the low level of critical health literacy in the population. In this interdepartmental and interdisciplinary research group, a low-threshold training programme for laypersons will be developed to convey the most important quality features of reliable health information. The basis for this training programme will be a catalogue of quality criteria that has been tested for comprehensibility and ease of use.
