How to use Twitter at your next medical conference - 0 views

  • Twitter can be a great way to capture the small nuggets of information you glean while at a conference.  If possible don’t worry about trying to post everything from a single slide, but try to find the fact or theme that resonates with you. 
  • After the conference look back through your stream of posts and see a good journal of what you found inspiring. 
    "a quick overview of good ways for you to make use of Twitter at a medical conference. The growing field of palliative medicine has had a strong social media presence and the addition of more people into our online network helps get important information to people far beyond the patients and families we see each day in our work."

  • In 2006 I suggested that it might be time to actually define ''Education'', something omitted in the draft bill, and to explore its role in personal and community life, but this was rejected as too ambitious.
