Social media and health care reform
In the era of health care reform, hospitals need to figure out how to do more and more, with less. Social media can play an important role in patient care, patient support, health research, education, training, advocacy, and more.
Each month in Ottawa, people who are interested in social media gather for a Third Tuesday event, never mind that it rarely happens on a Tuesday, or in the third week of the month for that matter. Third Tuesday is a must-attend fixture. May’s Third Tuesday takes place on Monday May 7 and Ann Fuller, public relations director at the Childrens’ Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) will discuss current and potential uses for social media in health care, as well as some of the related risks and opportunities. It takes place at Maxwell’s on Elgin Street at 17.30. Book now because space is limited.
