Cover image for lecture: Safe Use of Social Media – A Guide for Nurses

Lecture Overview

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.
