A complete healthcare resource

myDr provides Australians with comprehensive articles and topical items of interest about a wide variety of diseases and conditions, tests and treatments, health and fitness issues, and medications. In addition, Australians can search for a health professional in their area using several criteria, including specialty and gender. They can also view a health professional's own website if they have one.

Credible content

myDr is a commercial healthcare website but advertising does not influence the content of myDr, so users can be sure the information provided is unbiased and credible. myDr complies with the standards set by healthdirect — a Federal Government accreditation initiative designed to provide Quality Assurance for health information on the Internet. myDr also abides by the HON Code principles of the Health on the Net Foundation.

An Australian team

The myDr Web site is compiled by a team of experienced Australian healthcare writers, with contributions from practising Australian healthcare professionals and recognised Australian health organisations. Members of the myDr team have many years' experience in medical writing, referencing and editing, so every item is thoroughly vetted to ensure the information is accurate, up-to-date and relevant to Australian clinical practice. All myDr content is reviewed and approved by practising Australian clinicians. All members of the team and external reviewers sign a conflict of interest statement listing any potential conflict - financial or otherwise.
