Social media 3 - responding to online feedback about the practice

Taking place on Tuesday, 23 August 2022 between 10.30am and 12.30pm, this two hour, interactive course is designed for practice managers within general medical or dental practice

The course explores the patient perspective and how practices can use this to maximise the benefits gained through use of social media, in particular to inform and refine patient communication and improve service provision. Areas such as the following will be explores:

  • How to respond to patient comments on social media channels (their own, or the practices)
  • What the practice can do if a patient shares their consultation on social media, and how to avoid this occurring
  • How to approach media enquiries
  • How to use feedback to improve service provision/improve the reputation of your practice

Participants will review risk reduction approaches which can be adopted in response to negative feedback, and will explore strategies to manage a range of challenging scenarios practices can face across personal, practice, patient, NHS and other channels.

This course is jointly led by MDDUS senior risk adviser, Liz Price and risk adviser Kay Grant.

Upon completion, a certificate detailing two hours of verifiable CPD will be provided by MDDUS to all attendees.
