BMA | Using social media: practical and ethical guidance for doctors and medical students

While many medical professionals use social media without encountering any difficulties, media interest and research into examples of unprofessional behaviour online have raised concerns that some doctors and medical students may be unknowingly exposing themselves to risk in the way they are using these ‘web 2.0’ applications and uploading personal material onto the internet.

Dr LJ's insight:

The BMA's guidelines for medical students and doctors. This remains an evolving area so another set of guidelines is not necessarily a bad thing. Our use of Web 2.0 is likely to change over the next few years with healthcare and educational organisations getting on board. In the meantime, it's wise to learn from other people's mistakes and not repeat them!
