My Book, Social Media in Clinical Practice, To Be Released on the 8th of August!

It’s a huge pleasure to announce that my book, Social Media in Clinical Practice, will be published by Springer on the 8th of August. Here is the Amazon link where you can pre-order it.

In the last 10 months, I’ve been working day and night to finish a book that could fill a huge gap regarding the practical use of social media in medicine and healthcare. Social Media in Clinical Practice was meant to introduce medical professionals to the digital world through real-life examples, suggestions and step-by-step instructions from blogs and Twitter to mobile apps and e-patients.

I’ve been teaching medical students and physicians about digital literacy for years, but in many cases, they wanted to learn more using a real book instead of e-learning materials.

I hope medical professionals will find this book useful and e-patients will share it with their doctors. An excerpt from the abstract:

Social media has been clearly changing the way medicine is practiced and healthcare is delivered. Medical professionals must be able to meet the special needs of technology-aware patients and use digital technologies in their work and communications properly. Each physician should find the tools that will assist them in their workflow, and patients need to be educated how to use the internet. It is the responsibility of medical professionals to contribute to this process.

The constantly evolving digital world must be used in the practice of medicine to improve the care of patients. However, the only way to do so effectively is via evidence-based, meaningful and strategic use. Social Media in Clinical Practice provides practical guidance in this mission and is thus essential reading for all medical personal looking into approaching this for the first time.
