March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

In pursuit of professionalism and high reliability, what role does social media play? Team members understand the potential benefits and risks associated with social media use in the medical workplace and conduct themselves professionally. However, all humans are subject to lapses, with a small number regularly violating professional standards placing patients, quality of work, other team members and organizational reputation at risk. Addressing the challenge associated with social media use requires the right people, process and systems to promote early identification and interventions to promote right practices. This webinar will discuss developing reliable and successful approaches to address clinical team members who model disrespect toward patients, families and fellow medical team members including unprofessional use of social media.


Gerald Hickson, MD, is the Joseph Ross chair of medical education administration and professor of pediatrics, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN.
