Social Media: What it offers you in your engagement with patients and communities
Are you active in social media?
The 'what' of Social Media
Social Media has huge potential
Is where there are lots of people
Patient communities are starting to form
This is where we can work
This is where we can learn
This is where we can talk
Where we can listen and support people
