Key Points
Social media is part of our culture. You need to learn about it and learn how you
can use it to make connections, improve patient experience, and garner media
coverage to attract new patients and staff.
“Engage and Educate” – do not use social media to diagnose.
Leverage social media to share information that is useful and timely. Embrace the
collaborative spirit of social media as a means to unite staff, volunteers, patients,
and other stakeholders.
Open Discussion
How are you currently using
social media?
How can social media be used
for outreach within your
organization?
What value can social
networking add to your
organization?
Of what value is social
networking to you personally
and/or professionally?
