Think: Public Engagement with Research
More and more people are using the internet to discover and share information about their health. In fact, more than 40% said information found via social media affects how they deal with their health.
58% of the UK adult population use social networking sites and more and more are using them for information and advice in all areas of their life – including their health. It is therefore vital that healthcare organisations find their place on social media.
Skills For Health have developed a new social media toolkit for healthcare which may be of interest to those of you working in a health related field.
