SANTOS, Vagner et al. Sites on drugs of abuse: resources for assessment. Trab. educ. saúde (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.8, n.3, pp.575-585. ISSN 1981-7746.

Health professionals should be encouraged to gain independence in the search for, selection, and use of information to solve daily problems. Furthermore, they should be encouraged to reflect on the events that were experienced, to pursue the reconstruction of the path that was followed, and to give them a new meaning. This article presents a learning experience graduate students had during the process of evaluating Brazilian sites on drugs of abuse. After ascertaining the great amount of information on drugs of abuse and the lack of criteria in discussing them on the Internet, a research process got underway that triggered the preparation of a protocol to assist in the process of selecting Brazilian sites that address the drugs of abuse issue.

Keywords : Internet; information technology in health; drugs of abuse.
