Social Media in Clinical Practice: Chapter 1, The Introduction

When I realized Springer made the individual chapters of my book, Social Media in Clinical Practice, available, I thought it would be useful for future readers to get some insights about each chapter one by one.

Here is the short summary of what you can read about and an excerpt of the first chapter, Social Media Is Transforming Medicine and Healthcare:

Medical professionals are natural communicators who constantly have to communicate with patients, peers and even with information; and as social media is becoming an integral part of communication, medical professionals of the twenty-first century must acquire new skills related to digital technologies. They have to be prepared for patients asking questions about the world wide web as well.

Topics covered:

  • Main differences between the old form of Internet and social media
  • What Is Actually Social Media?
  • Comparison of web browsers
  • How Are Websites Identified?
  • Examples of Using Social Media in Medicine
  • Online Reputation
  • Comparison of the most popular social networking platforms
  • Assessing the Quality of Medical Websites and Platforms
