Social media and the medical profession

The Australian Medical Association (AMA)has released Social media and the medical profession to assist doctors and medical students to maintain professional standards when using online social media. The guide was developed by the AMA Council of Doctors-in-Training(AMACDT), the New Zealand Medical Association Doctors-in-Training Council, the New Zealand Medical Students’ Association, and the Australian Medical Students’ Association. AMACDT Chair, Dr Michael Bonning, said that evidence is emerging that the use of online social media can pose risks for medical professionals and doctors have recently faced disciplinary action for their online behaviour.
