Doctors now using social media as a means of continuing education

Doctors now using social media as a means of continuing education | Adult Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

The landscape of healthcare marketing has changed dramatically over the past decade, with a multitude of doctors and medical professionals turning to social media for myriad purposes. This is no surprise, as 72 percent of American adults use one form of social media, according to the Pew Internet & American Life project, but some doctors are leaning on platforms like Twitter as a means of providing continuing education to medical professionals all over the world.

 

According to InformationWeek, Mike Cadogan, Ph.D., an emergency medicine physician and digital media enthusiast from Australia, found himself frustrated by the lack of interest in social media by many professionals in his field, especially as a means of spreading knowledge. As a result, a new hashtag, #FOAMed, which stands for Free Open Access Meducation (medical education), was first proposed by Cadogan in a lecture at the 2012 International Conference on Emergency Medicine and has already taken Twitter by storm.

 

"I'd always seen blogging and podcasting as an amazing medium for medical education," Cadogan told the news source. "It's a way to get peopled on board with something they felt was very beneath them. We've actively managed to engage a large group of researches and significant academics who are moving away from writing textbooks and journal articles to doing more in the online arena."

 

With the immense importance of academic journals and other studies still playing an active role in the healthcare field, the open source and open content trends of the internet provided a great opening for medical professionals to access the newest information and apply it going forward. Cadogan's hope is that Twitter can not only be a great place for doctors to communicate, but it can also become a great research tool to improve communication and collaboration throughout the field.
