Abstract

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women both around the world and in Saudi Arabia. Patients increasingly use the Internet for breast cancer information. However, the quality of the information is questionable. It will be getting worse if solicited information goes wrong, then it tends to have poor consequences on the general public. Assessing the quality of internet breast cancer information is typically challenging yet a rational and systematic approach can be useful in evaluating the quality of the information they provide to public. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the quality of internet breast cancer information by using fuzzy VIKOR approach where linguistic variables are applied to solve the uncertainties and subjectivities in expert decision making. This study benefits breast cancer patients know which websites have the mandate and the competence to educate the public on breast cancer issues. Besides, it helps them in their resolve to ensure the quality of breast cancer information on the internet.
