Use of Online Social Networking Resources for Education & Support in Psychiatry & Medicine

  1. 1. Disclosure “ AIl speakers must disclose relevant financial interests or other relationship (i.e., grants, research support, consultant fees, honoraria, royalties, ownership interest e.g., stocks, mutual funds) he/she or spouse/partner has or has had with the manufacturer of any commercial product within the past 12 months that may be discussed in the educational presentation. For this purpose we consider the relevant financial relationships of your spouse or partner that you are aware of to be yours.” I have no disclosures except that I do participate in a blog and a podcast that could potentially one day make money if someone came along and paid us to do what we are now doing for nothing. I’m not holding my breath.

  5. 5.

  6. 6. Use of the Internet to Communicate with Health Care Providers in the United States: Estimates from the 2003 and 2005 Health Information National Trends Surveys (HINTS) Ellen Burke Beckjord; Lila J Finney Rutten; Linda Squiers; Neeraj K Arora; Lindsey Volckmann; Richard P Moser; Bradford W Hesse JMIR 2007 http://www.jmir.org/2007/3/e20/HTML <ul><li>Adult Internet users in 2003 (n = 3982) and 2005 (n = 3244) were queried about contacting their providers via email or internet </li></ul><ul><li>Internet contact with health care providers increased slowly from 7% in 2003 to 10% in 2005. </li></ul>“ Policy-level changes are needed to maximize the availability and effectiveness of online patient-provider communication for health care consumers and health care providers. ”

  9. 10. <ul><li>&quot;First of all, when I think of blogs, I think blogs are muffins; they range from everything from bran to chocolate cake. They are more of a shape than they are defining a particular kind of content. And I think ... there is a similarity to blogs ... they tend to have posts, links, and comments.&quot; </li></ul>Tom Rosenstiel, Director of Project for Excellence in Journalism

  12. 13. Lagu 2008 “ One of my patients last night was a pastor, who was such a trooper. i mean the guy didn’t even complain when we had to transfer him to a different unit at 4 A.M.”
  13. 14. “ When you come into the ER yelling, moaning, and twisting in agony because you have a sprained ankle - I will hate you. Why will I hate you? I will hate you because the man in the next stretcher is dying of an excruciatingly painful form of cancer, yet he is silent.” Lagu 2008
