  • Conditions with highest prevalence are not necessarily the most discussed online. Conversation is greatest for conditions that require ongoing management, often through a combination of prescription and OTC treatments and lifestyle changes.Lower prevalence often leads to greater online engagement, with a larger share of the condition universe participating in social media about the condition and a greater volume of buzz relative to the number of diagnosed patients.Aside from end-of-life conditions or conditions affecting the very young or the very old, patients themselves drive the majority of online conversation.HCP involvement in social media discussions on public forums remains minimal. HCPs more often congregate on private, HCP-only boards and seldom communicate directly with patients.Across conditions, patients and caregivers primarily seek the experiences of trusted peers through the disease journey. However, there are significant differences by condition in what patients seek to accomplish through social media, how they use different social channels, and how they think about doctors, medicine, alternative treatments, and the pharma industry. Understanding these differences can lead to a deeper knowledge of patients and their victories, pain points and unmet needs.

    21. 21. Sampling the conversation<br />Brain Cancer<br />“Brain cancer is so awful. My mom is still in treatment, she has about 10 more avastin treatments left. She is 72, somewhat weak, hardly talks because she can't think of the right word to say and does nothing but sit in a chair all day and look out the window. I wonder what will happen once treatment ends, will she get any better or can we expect more of the same for the rest of her life.” CancerCompass.com, 2011-01-13<br />Breast Cancer<br />“I can related to the emotions impact of breast cancer  you are feeling , I was shocked, scared, angry, overwhelmed , crushed , hopeless, when the doctors informed me … in order for me to survive this I had to take life with cancer one day at a time , surrounded myself with family, friends , prayer and faith . … you are not along in this fight , I will keep you and your family in my prayers.” National Breast Cancer Foundation Forums, 2011-01-29<br />
