A Critical Use of Social Media in Medicine is for Learning

A Critical Use of Social Media in Medicine is for Learning | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

The evidence base supporting medical practice is growing at an exponential rate, and the time when any one physician could stay abreast of this evidence base has long since passed. Physicians in the primary care field and physicians in data-intensive and rapidly changing specialties such as oncology bear a particularly heavy burden in trying to manage this avalanche of information. Moreover, it is expected that newer forms of medically relevant information (comparative effectiveness research, patient-reported outcomes, personalized genomic and proteomic analyses, etc.) will need to be seamlessly integrated into medical practice.

 

As a result, within the next five years, the evolution of medicine will face an alarming bottleneck when the systems to support the publication, dissemination, uptake, and integration of new information will likely fail. (Perhaps not the best way to start a post on being ‘social’)

 

Social Learning in Medicine

Social learning theory has long been explored in the professions of medicine and education. In the past these explorations focused on simple connection derived from training pedigree, geography, and shared memberships in medical societies or associations. But with the emergence of social media the concepts of social learning can encompass a myriad of nontraditional connections and uses.

 

It is my hypothesis that docs may use social media in three separate ‘meaningful’ ways:

1. As a means of medical practice—providing direct patient care
2. As a public health communication channel—providing a credible opinion and review of breaking medical news and reports for the public
3. As a means of supporting their own continuing professional development—providing a learning and decision-making resource based on the collective knowledge of their own network

 

 

In the beginning of 2011 I, along with collaborators from Baylor (@doctor_v), Johns Hopkins (@rsm2800), and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (@mwasko), set out to better understand this third definition of the meaningful use of social media—how docs are using social media to share medical information and support their own continuing professional development.

 

Stay Tuned for Our Initial Peer-Reviewed Data Set

In research presented at the Medicine 2.0 meeting last fall at Stanford University, we reported for the first time on the meaningful adoption of social media as a professional learning resource, but we barely scratched the surface of the stories our data has to tell…and now it looks like our fuller dataset will be finally published in JMIR within the next month!!!

 

In the weeks that follow the publication of this research I will be taking special effort to explore and share the dataset in its fullest and I would love this community to join me. There are countless additional questions to be asked – some may be answerable with the existing dataset, others may take additional research – and we would be foolish to believe that this community can’t help us craft better and more insightful research questions.

 

Please keep an eye out for this research and please do not hesitate to contact me if you think there are other questions you are ready to explore.

It’s official! mHealth in the ‘trough of disillusionment’ | Telehealth and Telecare Aware | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

Gartner annually issues its Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies in the Dog Days of August, perhaps not to burst too many bubbles, derail too many fundings?

Lo and behold, ‘mobile health monitoring ‘ is heading towards the bottom of the Trough of Disillusionment. Moreover, its recovery is projected at 5-10 years to move out of the Trough, whip through the Slope of Enlightenment and enter the sunny uplands of the Plateau of Productivity. See Gartner chart below.
Our readers knew, from their own and our observations, that mHealth hit the top of the Peak of Inflated Expectations over four years ago [TTA 29 June 2010, 22 Apr 2011]. In January, we predicted that 2014 would be ‘the year of reckoning’ for mHealth and its fellow travelers.

Cancer : Internet trouble-t-il la relation patient-médecin ?

Cancer : Internet trouble-t-il la relation patient-médecin ? | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
Faut-il s’informer sur Internet avant une consultation en cancérologie ? Telle est la question qui a été posée aux Français dans le baromètre Vivavoice/Institut Curie (échantillon représentatif de 1 008 personnes). La réponse est mitigée. En effet, 58 % des Français (et 72 % des moins de 34 ans) estiment qu’Internet est utile, notamment pour poser des questions que l’on n’oserait pas aborder avec son médecin. Toutefois, la quête de cette information ne semble pas enrichir ou favoriser les échanges entre les patients et corps médical : plus de la moitié des Français considère qu’Internet n’aide pas à mieux préparer une consultation chez le médecin, et qu’il complique même la relation patient-médecin. - See more at: http://www.lequotidiendupharmacien.fr/actualite/article/2014/09/11/cancer-internet-trouble-t-il-la-relation-patient-medecin-_184556#sthash.13TLIe34.dpuf

Survey: Four years ago half of baby boomers were interested in texting, video conferencing for health | mobihealthnews | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

As a group, about 35 percent of baby boomers were interested in using their smartphone to learn about and better manage their own health, according to results from a survey conducted by academic researchers in late 2010. The survey, which consisted of responses from 469 consumers, 258 of which are baby boomers, only published its findings this month.

Health policy researchers lack confidence in social media for communicating scientific evidence

Health policy researchers lack confidence in social media for communicating scientific evidence | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
Though Twitter boats 645 million users across the world, only 14 percent of health policy researchers reported using Twitter – and approximately 20 percent used blogs and Facebook – to communicate their research findings over the past year, according to a new study. In contrast, sixty-five percent used traditional media channels, such as press releases or media interviews. While participants believed that social media can be an effective way to communicate research findings, many lacked the confidence to use it and felt their academic peers and institutions did not value it or respect it as much as traditional media and direct contact with policy makers.

More and more people are flying to Florida for its hospitals. You may not believe how they're finding out about the cutting edge treatment that Central Florida's doctors are offering. 

You could say social media is saving Amy Caterina's life. 

The California cancer survivor was diagnosed with Lymphedema six years ago.

"I sat down on the couch to read a book, just for a couple of minutes, and I got up and my knee was swollen like a cantaloupe. I was like, what?” recalled Caterina. “And I thought, 'Oh my God! That's Lymphedema."

Translating Research For Health Policy: Researchers’ Perceptions And Use Of Social Media

Translating Research For Health Policy: Researchers’ Perceptions And Use Of Social Media | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

As the United States moves forward with health reform, the communication gap between researchers and policy makers will need to be narrowed to promote policies informed by evidence. Social media represent an expanding channel for communication. Academic journals, public health agencies, and health care organizations are increasingly using social media to communicate health information. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now regularly tweets to 290,000 followers. We conducted a survey of health policy researchers about using social media and two traditional channels (traditional media and direct outreach) to disseminate research findings to policy makers. Researchers rated the efficacy of the three dissemination methods similarly but rated social media lower than the other two in three domains: researchers’ confidence in their ability to use the method, peers’ respect for its use, and how it is perceived in academic promotion. Just 14 percent of our participants reported tweeting, and 21 percent reported blogging about their research or related health policy in the past year. Researchers described social media as being incompatible with research, of high risk professionally, of uncertain efficacy, and an unfamiliar technology that they did not know how to use. Researchers will need evidence-based strategies, training, and institutional resources to use social media to communicate evidence.

Wikipedia and the Politics of Openness

Wikipedia and the Politics of Openness | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

Few virtues are as celebrated in contemporary culture as openness. Rooted in software culture and carrying more than a whiff of Silicon Valley technical utopianism, openness—of decision-making, data, and organizational structure—is seen as the cure for many problems in politics and business. But what does openness mean, and what would a political theory of openness look like?

Why doctors want the FDA to regulate health and fitness apps

Why doctors want the FDA to regulate health and fitness apps | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
Technology is shaping the future of healthcare, and while technology has brought a number of innovative healthcare solutions, some are worried about the growing impact and potential danger of unregulated health IT apps. Plenty of health and fitness apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play range from harmless to helpful, but doctors are worried about untested and unregulated apps that claim to replace medical devices or diagnose illnesses. Doctors are now asking the FDA to take notice and are warning the public to evaluate these apps with a critical eye.

However, once they're settled their first class action against a health app, I can still see Apple and Google hiring massive clinical faculties to assure the quality of apps in house.

 

For health app makers, the era of low-to-no scrutiny will soon be over.

When many of us think of social media, we think of teenagers sending pictures and snarky remarks, or middle-aged women planning high school reunions and sharing their kids’ latest achievements.

However, there is much more to it.

Most businesses these days would be at a loss without social media; it’s a huge marketing facet and one that opens a great informative forum.

Even hospitals are deep into social media and seeing important benefits from its use.

Towards more systematic Twitter analysis: metrics for tweeting activities

Towards more systematic Twitter analysis: metrics for tweeting activities | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
Twitter is an important and influential social media platform, but much research into its uses remains centred around isolated cases – e.g. of events in political communication, crisis communication, or popular culture, often coordinated by shared hashtags (brief keywords, prefixed with the symbol ‘#’). In particular, a lack of standard metrics for comparing communicative patterns across cases prevents researchers from developing a more comprehensive perspective on the diverse, sometimes crucial roles which hashtags play in Twitter-based communication. We address this problem by outlining a catalogue of widely applicable, standardised metrics for analysing Twitter-based communication, with particular focus on hashtagged exchanges. We also point to potential uses for such metrics, presenting an indication of what broader comparisons of diverse cases can achieve.
