Traffic Court in the OR: Tales of Physicians and Social Media

Time: 2:00-3:30 PM ET

Difficulty: Advanced

Overview:  Traffic court from the operating room? Physician advertising on Snapchat? Questionable tweets from an MD account? Tricia Shackelford and Jeff Frost have heard (and seen) it all. Social media in the workplace can enhance business operations by expanding communication, providing education, and improving services. Social media can also create potential risks, which are only exacerbated in the health care space due to patient privacy concerns. This webinar will discuss social media and its appropriate use in the health care industry, navigate the interaction between freedom of speech, patient rights, and employment law, and provide information on how to draft and implement a workable and practical Social Media Policy.
