The site, called Health Compass, is designed as an interactive, self-study programme meant to assist older adults and their caregivers in becoming better informed participants and decision makers in their health care.
The site aims to improve older adults' ability to access, evaluate and act on health and research information about aging. The site provides suggestions on where to find high quality health information on the Internet and in other media sources.
It also provides older adults with tools that help them critically evaluate and interpret health information. That includes definitions of research terms and the different kinds of medical research studies.
Health Compass is a partnership between the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) and the Merck Institute of Aging and Health.
