Social Media in Clinical Practice: Chapter 10, Organizing Medical Events in Virtual Environments

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 tenth chapter, Organizing Medical Events in Virtual Environments:

Virtual environments have been used in cases when geographical limitations did not make real world meetings possible; when cost effective forms of communication or collaboration are needed or conferences have to be recorded, accessible online and archived. The combination of a community, learning materials, simulations and methods for communication can add up as a virtual environment. Virtual reality (VR) is a term applying to computer-simulated environments that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world, as well as in imaginary worlds. Moreover, the number of virtual worlds has been increasing for the past few years.Basic definitions used in wikis
