How to use social media

The popularity of social media has grown rapidly in recent years. We know that medical students and doctors widely use sites such as Facebook and Twitter as well as well-established blogs and internet forums that are aimed specifically at medical professionals.

While many medical professionals use social media without encountering any difficulties, media interest and research into examples of unprofessional behaviour online have raised concerns that some doctors and medical students may be unknowingly exposing themselves to risk.

BMA's social media guidance provides practical and ethical advice on the different issues that doctors and medical students may encounter when using social media.
