Social Media Panel: Get Connected for Maximum Nursing and Patient Engagement

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Social media enhances nursing knowledge, professional growth, and networking opportunities. It provides a forum to engage patients and interact with other medical professionals to improve care. Listen to a panel of nurses, including a cancer survivor, share their own experiences using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and nursing blogs. You’ll learn the value of social media in professional practice and gain an understanding of appropriate use to comply with ethical standards, professional codes of conduct, and employer regulations.


  1. Understand the professional implications of social media, including benefits and risks.
  2. Describe healthcare-related cases of social media utilization in cancer care, from the perspective of both the nurse and the patient. 
  3. Identify strategies to use social media in oncology nursing, to advance as an individual clinician, and to achieve organizational aims.
