Social Media Module
The College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario is pleased to present the e-learning module, Pause Before You Post: Social Media Awareness for Regulated Healthcare Professionals.
This module was a collaborative project with six other health regulatory Colleges in Ontario. It is intended to enhance your awareness of social media use in health care as well as provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your use of social media and professional behaviours, through numerous examples and case-based scenarios. Applying sound principles from professional standards of practice and related legislation when you use social media will help ensure risk management strategies are in place and professional reputations and relationships are maintained.
The intent of this module is to help you:
- Understand the social media environment and its professional service applications.
- Describe the role of the College in guiding professional interactions within the social media environment.
- Gain awareness of the benefits and risks and of using social media in practice.
- Describe your professional responsibilities to ensure privacy and confidentiality when using social media in practice.
- Reflect on the impact of personal use of social media on professional practice.
- Understand key concepts for maintaining professional behaviours when using social media.
This learning module does not replace the need to read relevant standards and legislation; rather, it helps to interpret the standards and applicable legislation and regulations, answer everyday practice questions and offers best practice suggestions.
Please note: what is applicable in Ontario, may not be applicable in other jurisdictions.
