Blogs and Tweets, Texting and Friending
Social Media and Online Professionalism in Health Care
- Sandra DeJong, MD, Cambridge Health Alliance, Cambridge, MA, USA
The connected generation regularly uses social media, including health care professionals, but what happens when a patient wants to friend you? Or when you've already posted a rant on a patient that gets viewed by others? What information may already be floating on the Internet that a patient may find about you in a Google search and that might impact your therapeutic relationship?
Whether you are new to social media or an expert user in your private life (but haven't thought about what this means for you professionally), this book is for you. It’s the "when" and "how" to use social media effectively while maintaining online professionalism.
