|COURSE DESCRIPTION|| |
Social media has become a great way to connect with people, but in the healthcare profession, social networking can often blur the ethical lines in a patient-provider relationship. Postings on Facebook and similar sites have cost some healthcare professionals their jobs and some others have even lost their license to practice. Program faculty will explore the issues which make social media a potential liability for healthcare providers and discuss ways to teach professionals how to avoid the misuse of this new media.
