Social Media impacts almost every aspect of life including health care. Consumers can rely on health information being readily available via social media however, some health information can be misinformation or even disinformation.

  • Recognize the impact of social media on health misinformation in patient populations
  • Discuss resources to become knowledgeable on addressing misinformation with patients
  • Recognize professional and ethical responsibility in use of social media
