Social media for More Effective Infection Prevention

OSAP Symposium



 

 

 

    SOCIAL MEDIA FOR MORE EFFECTIVE INFECTION PREVENTION

DESCRIPTION

Words such as Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Linkedin, YouTube, Flickr, Google, and blog are now an integral part of the lexicon of contemporary society and represent just a few of the core elements of the social media universe. Many social media sites draw some of the largest audiences on the internet, and therefore have a huge potential to be used by all elements of the dental community for education, information sharing, advertising services and products, communication, and collaboration.

Dr. Lefebvre will provide an overview of the world of social media and discuss the general characteristics of its users. He will also discuss the future evolution of social media and its potential impact on society.

Dr. Thibodeau will discuss some of the benefits and pitfalls of social media tools and review how these tools are currently being used by health and safety organizations, dental schools and the healthcare industry.

**This program was supported through an educational grant from Miele.
