Social media 1 - social media in practice

Taking place on Thursday, 17 March 2022 between 10.30am and 12.30pm, this two hour, interactive course is designed for PMs within general medical or dental practice

In this two hour interactive workshop attendees will learn the benefits of social media use and how to develop a clear strategy to boost engagement and communication with patients and other stakeholders.

Topics we will cover include:

  • How the practice social media page can be used to improve patient education and communication
  • How social media interfaces with other communication channels - e.g. email, text, telephone, online consultations and your practice website
  • The benefits that different platforms of social media may bring to the practice
  • How to improve wider community engagement with other local businesses and healthcare organisations
  • How to maximise team communication and business continuity with staff use of social media

During the session attendees will be able to participate in breakout sessions where you will have the opportunity to share your own experiences and views to help gain a better understanding of the potential benefits and challenges associated with the implementation of social media to achieve practice benefits.

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