This week we are learning how to critically evaluate information on the internet to distinguish the good from the bad. In this assignment you will put those skills to work.
Choose a topic from the list below. Find three different websites that would be credible sources for academic research on your chosen topic.
- Emerging Technology in Healthcare

- Healthcare Informatics

- Privacy, Security and Confidentiality in the Healthcare Environment
In a Word document, you will include a link for each website, along with a rationale (75 words per source) supporting why you believe the site is a valid source to retrieve information from.
