Pediatric home care clinicians dealing with premature infants can encounter any number of unusual conditions related to their patient's prematurity. Finding reliable information on the condition can be difficult for a clinician who does not have immediate access to a health sciences library. There are, however, many useful, reliable websites that can be consulted with a laptop that has wireless access. This article reviews a variety of useful websites with a wealth of evidence-based information. The author also provides information on Health on the Net (HON), a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization that has established a code of conduct that websites must meet in order to display their seal.
