Twitter: an opportunity for public health campaigns : The Lancet

Twitter: an opportunity for public health campaigns : The Lancet | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Because of Twitter's broad reach, especially among young adults, health advocates should consider increasing the use of Twitter and other online platforms to communicate public health and cancer prevention messages. Research is needed to explore ways to direct health messages to social network users who discuss and search for risk behaviours online. Combining the expertise of skin cancer and health communication researchers, public health advocates, and social media experts might be necessary to develop the effective cancer prevention campaigns.

Building muscle reduces incidence of premature death in older adults

Building muscle reduces incidence of premature death in older adults | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
(Medical Xpress)—New UCLA research suggests that the more muscle mass older Americans have, the less likely they are to die prematurely. The findings add to the growing evidence that overall body composition—and not the widely used body mass index, or BMI—is a better predictor of all-cause mortality.

Social media use among patients and caregivers: a scoping review - Hamm et al. - BMJ Open

Social media use among patients and caregivers: a scoping review - Hamm et al. - BMJ Open | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Article summary
Article focus

The use of social media in healthcare has been widely advocated, but there is little evidence describing the current state of the science and whether or not these tools can be used to benefit patient populations.

We mapped the state of the existing literature evaluating the use of social media in patient and caregiver populations.

Key messages

There is an extensive and rapidly growing body of literature available investigating the use of social media in patient and caregiver populations.

Most studies have been descriptive; however, with such widespread use, evaluations of effectiveness are needed.

In studies that have examined effectiveness, positive conclusions are often reported, despite the non-significant findings.

Strengths and limitations of this study

Our search was comprehensive and we included an extensive body of literature, across conditions, populations and study designs.

Social media is constantly evolving, leading to challenges in keeping the search updated.

A more in-depth analysis is needed on specific topics, conditions and populations to guide the use and implementation of social media interventions.

Good to see the impact of socical media in health care reviewed.
What maybe "non-sginificant" to reserach in statistic perspective, might not be the same as relevance in view of personal meaning ! ;-)

Still a lot to go, specifcally in the direction of impact on personal satisfaction, behaviour and health outcomes.. (see the discussion paragraph)

Evaluating Health Promotion Social Media Strategies for Public Health Impact

Evaluating Health Promotion Social Media Strategies for Public Health Impact | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

I recently spoke at an interactive workshop presentation at the 2013 Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC) looking at social media use in public health and the strategies available for evaluating those strategies in practice. The talk was focused on the tools, methods and approaches and the inherent challenges in dealing with a dynamic social communication environment.

Here are the slides from that presentation.

“And the web stormed the enterprise and disrupted roles, tasks and jobs: it cast speed, openness, flexibility and efficiency throughout, sparing no business processes: manufacturing, logistic, accounting, customer relation management, lead generation…”
The digital mutation is also profoundly disrupting how knowledge is acquired, organized and shared. Knowledge is an intangible, yet strategic asset of any enterprise. With businesses becoming more virtual and dematerialized, its value is patently and rapidly growing. Continue reading →

The influence of gender equality policies on gender inequalities in health in Europe

Few studies have addressed the effect of gender policies on women's health and gender inequalities in health. This study aims to analyse the relationship between the orientation of public gender equality policies and gender inequalities in health in European countries, and whether this relationship is mediated by gender equality at country level or by other individual social determinants of health.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

Stigma as a public health tool: Implications for health promotion and citizen involvement

Stigma as a public health tool: Implications for health promotion and citizen involvement | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Stigma is a social mechanism by which individuals and groups are discredited; it reduces social status and creates ‘spoiled identities’ (Goffman, 1963). Stigma can operate at an individual and structural level; and be imposed externally or be self-perceived by individuals who apply negative stereotypes to themselves (Link & Phelan, 2001). In the field of substance use, debates around stigma tend to be divided between studies which assess the harms that stigma carries for health and identity, and an alternative body of work that ‘views stigma more benignly, as a form of social control’ (Room, 2005). We argue that if, as the second body of literature suggests, stigmatising measures are adopted widely in the substance use field their deleterious impact risks exacerbating substance use problems, particularly amongst the least well off. Furthermore, the strategy may impede the commitment to empowerment which has been fundamental to health promotion since the publication of the Ottawa Charter in 1986.
