Case Presentations on Google+?

I’m still trying to find ways to use the really professional network, Google+, in medicine and I asked my community a few days ago about that:

I haven’t asked you about that for a while, but how have your habits been changing in the last few weeks on Google+? Do you use it more than Facebook? For me, it seemed to be a fantastic professional network, but still have many more peers on Twitter and Facebook. What to do?

I got some interesting opinions and ideas, but a French colleague  told me French doctors actually perform case presentations in private ways. They upload information about the case, discuss it with other peers and get to a final diagnosis. Based on the very simple privacy settings of Google+, it can be useful for such purposes. Anyone else with similar experience?

  1. This is really interesting. I am assuming they use the feature ‘Circles’ for this. I am not sure if Facebook can ever be as secure as G +

  2. Hi, in Spain we’re using also Facebook for that kind of case-presentations. There’s a group called Med&Learn where several cases a day are uploaded. Since the group is closed I send you an screenshot but without names or avatars ().

    I’m also into an other group of medical students on Facebook where we talk about our preparation for the Spanish USMLE (called MIR) and we share cases we see in our daily medical practice or that we found on the Internet.

    I think that even if G+ is not supporting group/fan-page features at the time, circles can actually be a good way to create “groups” and share them. Biggest problem there is that every member in the group should update his/her circle every time a new member is added.
