Social media is rapidly becoming an important piece of the healthcare puzzle, enabling open communication between patients, providers, vendors and other key stakeholders. It can help you increase event attendance, amplify important topics, and build national or even global networks around a product or an idea. However, with new terminology and unfamiliar online platforms to learn before you can really join the conversation, it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed.
If you want to join the social media community but aren’t sure where to start, please join us for an introductory session on two of the most heavily used platforms: Twitter and LinkedIn. Whether you’re completely new to social media or you’d just like a little guidance, this presentation will provide you
with the basics you need to start using these popular tools, including:
•Setting up an account •Finding people, topics and communities to build your network •How to post new topics, and reply to others •Simple strategies for using social media during conferences and other large events
A HIMSS calendar of events for National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2013) will also be discussed, including the many opportunities for the NI Community to participate in social media over the entire week.
