Social Media in Health Care: Focus of APA Talk
Last weekend I was in Orlando, Florida for the American Psychological Association conference, where I spoke as part of a symposium on Social Media in Long-Term Care Settings. We discussed concerns around maintaining privacy and confidentiality, as well as the use of social media to improve care. Of course, I talked about my blog, how it developed, recommendations for those considering beginning their own blogs, and ways in which I’ve used my blog for therapeutic purposes with the residents. Below you can see me with co-presenters, Drs. Keely Kolmes, Geoff Lane, Mary Lewis, and Pat Bach, who are all psychologists experienced in the use of social media in health care.
