The landscape of blogging in palliative care

We present the case of a 30-year-old patient with pontine glioblastoma multiforme, World Health Organisation grade IV (WHO IV). This case is of particular interest in terms of the patient’s use of social media as a medium of expression. This popular form of communication raises important clinical, ethical and social issues relating to confidentiality and the nature of the physician–patient relationship in a unique context.

Medical Education & Social Media

Medical Education & Social Media | Using social media in medical education | Scoop.it

Medical education could benefit from new forms of communication between health professionals made possible through social media - a collection of technologies that use the Internet to connect people. These technologies will be familiar to many and include Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+. These social media create connections between individuals and form networks within which information is shared. In this short review I will outline some of the opportunities and challenges facing the use of social media and medical education. I will not focus on any particular form of medical education so the discussion includes undergraduate and postgraduate.

Online medical content curation and personal time management with Web 2.0: an exciting era | Using social media in medical education | Scoop.it

By Bertalan Mesko

 

The recent increase in the number of online medical resources has raised important questions about content curation on the World Wide Web and the importance of time management tools and applications used in medicine and healthcare. Content curation is crucial at a time when patients and their doctors are searching more online but the majority of health resources are considered medically unreliable. The value of crowdsourcing and time management tools that can save time and effort for professionals is demonstrated.
