Mayo Clinic is one of the health institutes that has been open to web 2.0 for years now. Here is another reason for that, patient stories shared via Youtube.
Lee Aase, manager of Syndication and Social Media for Mayo Clinic, will attend the Dutch event (one of the best health 2.0 events this year in Europe) on the 12th and 13th of October organized by Lucien Engelen. I will also be there.
I’ve already reported several new Youtube channels, but now Nature.com launched its own. Why? The Great Beyond blog has the answer:
Where else can you watch items on genome analysis of the duck-billed platypus and new interpretations of the mysterious Antikythera Mechanism alongside whale evolution and mega-impacts on Mars? Nowhere, that’s where.
One example: Smoking and Lung
I’ve been a subscriber of the ScienCentral channel in Youtube for a while and there are really great videos about important topics such as genealogy (Blaine will certainly like it).
Genes don’t just tell whom you’re related to or why you look a certain way; now, they can also tell you where you came from. Researchers have created a genetic map of Europe, and they hope to expand it globally, as this ScienCentral News video explains.
I wanted to share two new, medicine-related Youtube channels with you. The first one is managed by the Detroit Medical Center and focuses on medical animations, educational materials.
The second one was launched by Mark Senak, the blogger of Eye on FDA and focuses on:
The eyeonfda channel is an extension of my Weblog http://www.eyeonfda.com and is designed to collect video of interest to the pharmaceutical, biotech and public health communities and meant to aggregate health care videos along disease and issue specific lines.
Clinical Cases and Images shared this link with me. The Health Sciences Library of the University of Buffalo has recently started an own Youtube channel with a variety of tutorials and answers to FAQs. You can subscribe to it here.
At this point, there are 5 videos there:
This is a good example about how to educate with the tools of web 2.0 and how to get physicians, medical students or other medical librarians closer to your institute.
BioMed Central has recently made a big step towards web 2.0. The new YouTube Channel of Biomed Central is a perfect example which, I hope, will be followed by other open access journals as well. A screenshot from their blog:
We aim to include as many videos as possible relating to BioMed Central, so if you have created a video about an article you have recently published, or on open access issues in general, please upload it to YouTube and send us the link so we can add it to the channel.
BioMed Central is an independent publishing house committed to providing immediate open access to peer-reviewed biomedical research.
All original research articles published by BioMed Central are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. BioMed Central views open access to research as essential in order to ensure the rapid and efficient communication of research findings.
Do you happen to know other interesting, medicine/science-related YouTube channels?
