Seminar: Medicine 2.0: Social media in medical research and practice

Today, on Monday 29 October 2012, Medical Museion and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at University of Copenhagen is hosting a meeting on social media in medical research and practice.

Social media have conquered society. They are now also making their way into medical research and practice. What can doctors and researchers gain from using social media? How will these media change medical science and practice?

The meeting will kick off with 30-minute presentations by international experts in medical science communication and also active social media users:

  • Dr. Richard Smith, former editor of the British Medical Journal (BMJ), advocate for ”open access publishing” and very active on social media
  • Dr. Bertalan Meskó, founder of www.webicina.com and one of the world’s leading experts in the field of medicine and social media

Following the talks, the audience will be invited to discuss with a panel, which also includes MD PhD journalist Charlotte Strøm and me who has had the honor of being refered to as a Danish specialist in medical communication Nina Bjerglund Andersen.

The event is open to everyone and will be in English. No sign-up required.

    This event looks great! So sad I missed it; I’m a student at the KU Public health faculty doing research on this topic. Do you plan on having any more of these seminars?

        Thanks for the article! Great read. Would have been awesome to be there. I have bookmarked the blog and will definitely be following it. For my thesis topic I’ll be analysing a few successful case studies of social media in Public health and what it is that has made them work so well. What is the secret to using social media successfully for public health purposes. I’m really excited about it.
