Session Description

As social media continues to proliferate, both in terms of usage and number of platforms, it is redefining both personal and professional communication and knowledge-sharing. Like other industries, healthcare is part of this trend, and healthcare organizations, providers, and staff are finding that social media represents a polarity in terms of usefulness and negative effects. This program focuses on current trends in social media, the role of social applications and interactions in healthcare, potential benefits and risks, and proactive strategies for reinforcing appropriate social media practices.
