E-patients know that social media can be a potent tool for spreading the movement, spreading the message, and connecting with others. Some of us are better at it than others; if you’re looking for someone to follow who does it well, try SPM member and Medicine-X ePatient Scholar Marie Ennis-O’Connor: bio, Twitter @JBBC, website Journeying Beyond Breast Cancer, and column Beyond The Buzz: HealthCare Social Media at Health Works Collective. (See what happens when a PR professional” meets “cancer patient”?)
Marie came to mind just now for this great poster (“infographic”) created by Tim France @FranceTim of @iniscom and Tom Fowler @GlobalHealthTom about using Twitter at events. To visit her original post on the Healthcare Social Media site, click the graphic.
