For parents of small children and lay people it can be difficult to navigate specialist literature when trying to access paediatric problems on their own. Although information targeted at this group already exists, both on the Internet and in different brochures, pamphlets and books, it is of varying quality and is not always easily accessible.
With this in mind, there is a need to collect and simplify the literature on this subject, and make it available to lay people and parents of small children. To reach this goal, we have used the Internet and CD-rom as a publishing solution.
The main subjects covered are child development, diseases, vaccination, child check ups, parental concerns, nutrition and social rights. The design and layout of the information site was done independently of The University of Oslo s web pagestemplate.
We hope that the information site has become simple to understand and a useful information source for the target group. For potential future publication of the information site emanating from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, the site should be quality assured by paediatric specialists.
