Today via Twitter I came across an excellent publication entitled Ethical Framework for the Use of Social Media by Mental Health Professionals .
The article recently appeared in Tilt Magazine.
As one of my clients is in this health area I was particularly interested in having a read.
The article covers areas such as:
- Patient relationships
- Practitioner online behaviour
- Friends and Follow requests
- Expectation setting if working with clients on social networking sites
Recently the AMA also released its Social Media Guide for Practioners so it appears the health professions are gradually taking a look at this critical area.
