GMC | Doctors’ use of social media (2013) | Health news | Scoop.it

Doctors’ use of social media (2013)

1. In Good medical practice* we say:36. You must treat colleagues fairly and with respect.65. You must make sure that your conduct justifies your patients’ trust in you and the public’s trust in the profession.69. When communicating publicly, including speaking to or writing in the media, you must maintain patient confidentiality. You should remember when using social media that communications intended for friends or family may become more widely available.70. When advertising your services, you must make sure the information you publish is factual and can be checked, and does not exploit patients’ vulnerability or lack of medical knowledge.2. In Confidentiality† we say:13. Many improper disclosures are unintentional. You should not share identifiable information about patients where you can be overheard, for example, in a public place or in an internet chat forum…3. In this guidance, we explain how doctors can put these principles into practice. Serious or persistent failure to follow this guidance will put your registration at risk.

Social media

4. Social media describes web-based applications that allow people to create and exchange content. In this guidance we use the term to include blogs and microblogs (such as Twitter), internet forums (such as doctors.net), content communities (such as YouTube and Flickr), and social networking sites (such as Facebook and LinkedIn).5. The standards expected of doctors do not change because they are communicating through social media rather than face to face or through other traditional media. However, using social media creates new circumstances in which the established principles apply.6. You must also follow our guidance on prescribing,‡ which gives advice on using internet sites for the provision of medical services.7. As well as this guidance, you should keep up to date with and follow your organisation’s policy on social media.

Privacy

8. Using social media has blurred the boundaries between public and private life, and online information can be easily accessed by others. You should be aware of the limitations of privacy online and you should regularly review the privacy settings for each of your social media profiles.§ This is for the following reasons.a. Social media sites cannot guarantee confidentiality whatever privacy settings are in place.b. Patients, your employer and potential employers, or any other organisation that you have a relationship with, may be able to access your personal information.c. Information about your location¶ may be embedded within photographs and other content and available for others to see.d. Once information is published online it can be difficult to remove as other users may distribute it further or comment on it.

The benefits and risks of using social media

9. Doctors’ use of social media can benefit patient care by:a. engaging people in public health and policy discussionsb. establishing national and international professional networksc. facilitating patients’ access to information about health and services.

Maintaining boundaries

10. Using social media also creates risks, particularly where social and professional boundaries become unclear. You must follow the guidance inMaintaining a professional boundary between you and your patient.ıı11. If a patient contacts you about their care or other professional matters through your private profile, you should indicate that you cannot mix social and professional relationships and, where appropriate, direct them to your professional profile.

Maintaining confidentiality

12. Many doctors use professional social media sites that are not accessible to the public. Such sites can be useful places to find advice about current practice in specific circumstances. However, you must still be careful not to share identifiable information about patients.13. Although individual pieces of information may not breach confidentiality on their own, the sum of published information online could be enough to identify a patient or someone close to them.14. You must not use publicly accessible social media to discuss individual patients or their care with those patients or anyone else.

Respect for colleagues

15. Good medical practice says that doctors must treat colleagues fairly and with respect.* This covers all situations and all forms of interaction and communication. You must not bully, harass or make gratuitous, unsubstantiated or unsustainable comments about individuals online.16. When interacting with or commenting about individuals or organisations online, you should be aware that postings online are subject to the same laws of copyright and defamation† as written or verbal communications, whether they are made in a personal or professional capacity.‡

Anonymity

17. If you identify yourself as a doctor in publicly accessible social media, you should also identify yourself by name. Any material written by authors who represent themselves as doctors is likely to be taken on trust and may reasonably be taken to represent the views of the profession more widely.§18. You should also be aware that content uploaded anonymously can, in many cases, be traced back to its point of origin.¶

Conflicts of interest

19. When you post material online, you should be open about any conflict of interest and declare any financial or commercial interests in healthcare organisations or pharmaceutical and biomedical companies.ıı

Data supports fast approval for Roche's breast cancer drug -FDA staff | Reuters | Health news | Scoop.it

"(Reuters) - Trial data on Swiss drugmaker Roche's breast cancer treatment Perjeta supported a faster approval of the drug for use in early stages of the disease, reviewers for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Tuesday.

Roche is seeking approval for Perjeta as a neoadjuvant, or initial, treatment for early stage breast cancer patients whose cancer cells contain increased amounts of the HER2 protein.

A neoadjuvant treatment is given in the beginning to shrink a tumor before the main treatment. Perjeta, also known as pertuzumab, is currently approved as a first-line treatment for metastatic breast cancer."

Medtech innovation needs redefining in a new health economy that is focused on value and convenience

Medtech innovation needs redefining in a new health economy that is focused on value and convenience | Health news | Scoop.it

Health IT companies need to focus on innovation in order to create new services and business models, according to a new report from PricewaterhouseCoopers' Health Research Institute

 

Researchers found that only 14% of medical technology executives have formally managed innovation activities. Meanwhile, 17% of such respondents said they believe their companies are "innovation pioneers,"


The report also found that:

At least 18 new companies are driving innovation in the health IT sector;A device's value is now measured by the company's ability to help customers solve broader problems;Integrated services and business models are becoming more important;Health care technology companies have been slower than other businesses to use new social, mobile, analytic and cloud technologies; andSuch companies are relying on open innovation to drive future growth.

The report found that while health care technology executives lack formal processes to achieve greater innovation, they expect a higher level of innovation over the next three years.
