JAMA Network | JAMA | Social Media and Physicians’ Online Identity Crisis

Dundee TILT's insight:

"Physicians are increasingly counted among Facebook’s 1 billion users and Twitter’s 500 million members. Beyond these social media platforms, other innovative social media tools are being used in medical practice, including for online consultation,1 in the conduct of clinical research,2 and in medical school curricula.3 Social media content is brief, characterized as “many-to-many” communication, and able to spread rapidly across the Internet beyond a person’s control. These and other features of social media create new dimensions to traditional ethical issues, particularly around maintaining appropriate boundaries between physicians and patients."

1. Google yourself - repeat on a regular basis, at least once a month, and set up Google alerts to catch new mentions.

2. Correct mistakes and false information about you that is published online. Contact the site authors.

3. Create your own content - start a blog, Twitter account and Facebook page, use Google+ for draft posts. Send selected news to Twitter, try Facebook for updates from you practice. Link you own blog posts from Twitrter and Facebook.

Setup professional profiles on Google+ and LinkedIn.

Push irrelevant or non-reliable content down in the search results. The farther down the better, as 90% of people won't go past the first page of search results and 99% won't go past page 2.

4. Embrace constructive online criticism. Consider it a 360-degree evaluation.

5. Address actionable items such as "hot button issues" among patients - long waits, lack of response or slow responses.

Social networking sites | Nursing and Midwifery Council

The Nursing and Midwifery Council's advice for using social networking sites.

 

It includes this section for educators:

 

Additional advice for employers and educators

 

We do not advocate blanket bans on nurses, midwives or students joining or using social networking sites, and employers and educators should not suggest that this is our position. Even if such bans could be imposed on workplace or university computer networks, personal computers and mobile devices offer easy access. Blanket bans are likely therefore to be both unenforceable and counter-productive. We support the responsible use of social networking sites by nurses, midwives and students.

Given the large proportion of the population using social networking sites, healthcare providers and universities can derive benefits through engaging with social media, both at a corporate and individual level. Having a corporate presence on social networking sites can also lend credibility when engaging students, nurses and midwives around these issues, and can provide a platform for encouraging responsible use.
