Abstract & full-text available.

It is known that patients, including patients with genetic cardiac diseases, turn to the internet to gather information about their condition. Many tools now exist to appraise websites for reliability and quality. However, health practitioners generally do not have time to do this before recommending sites to patients. Health on the Net’s Code of Conduct (HONCode) is a well-accepted tool that can be suggested to help patients seek quality health information.
