Communication has been permanently changed by social media. This week, we will discuss social media and the impact on nursing and health and its use in healthcare. As we focus on this topic, please address the questions below in the discussion.
- What does the professional literature say about the use of social media in nursing practice?
- How can the use of social media impact patient care positively and negatively?
- What are the ethical and legal implications of nurses using social media in the workplace?
- Discuss ways social media programs can advance nurses’ personal and professional goals.
- How do you implement the use of social media in your nursing practice? If you do not, consider ways nurses can use social media to support their nursing practice.
