Lecture Overview

Some handheld devices and small IT devices have helped improve patients' wellbeing in the home and hospital. However, one outcome is that nurses may unwittingly become 'movie stars' without their consent. This session looks at some of the pitfalls of social media for health professionals, including taking photos while at work and privacy settings.
