Medical News Today is dedicated to upholding the highest level of integrity to bring you the most accurate medical information. We maintain strict medical and editorial processes rooted in trustworthy, accessible, and accurate information. In some situations, we may use Artificial Intelligence (AI), or similar technology to help develop certain aspects of our content. 

We have carefully created an AI Editorial Process to ensure that any content our team has created with the assistance of AI still adheres to our rigorous medical and editorial process. It must also align with our principles regarding the ethical use of AI as outlined below.

Principles regarding the ethical use of AI

  • Rigorous vetting: Any potential use of AI must undergo rigorous vetting. This is based on an established set of criteria so that we can ensure AI tools and technology are unbiased, reputable, and trustworthy.
  • Human component: Medical News Today is firmly committed to upholding human expertise as the final seal of medical and editorial approval before publishing. Content will never go straight from an AI tool or technology to publication without thorough human validation checks.
  • Transparency: AI may serve to support and enhance certain editorial elements. We strive to be transparent and clear about the use of AI in our editorial copy.

Our team works hard to ensure we are always creating accurate, relevant, inclusive, and actionable health information and products, but we want to hear from you if we could improve this in any way. If you have any questions or comments about the accuracy or usability of our content or feel an article is outdated, please let us know by contacting us here.
