Objective: We aimed to evaluate the quality of video content related to kidney transplantation on YouTube as a source of information.
Method: 117 YouTube videos were included in this study. Utilization of Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) score, Global Quality Scale (GQS) and modified DISCERN score were approved for quality assessment.
Results: Stand-alone health information websites comprised 35.9% of all video resources. The quality of the videos from universities/professional organizations/nonprofit physicians/physicians was generally better than the videos from other sources (p<0.001). According to the modified DISCERN score, the quality level of 72.6% of the video contents classified as poor. A positive correlation drew attention between the scores and the duration of videos (p<0.001).
Conclusions: We think that the quality of the video content about kidney transplantation on YouTube is quite insufficient. The best quality of content was provided by universities/professional organisations/nonprofit physicians/physicians among all videos.
