Social Media and the Use of Apps in General Practice

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) recognises that GPs and general practice staff have embraced social media at a rapid rate, and guidance around safe and professional usage within general practice is necessary. Similarly, there are many health apps that have the potential to encourage better health but there are concerns about the accuracy and appropriateness of information in some apps and their privacy and security settings.

These webinars are designed to assist general practices in their adoption and use of social media and apps. In particular, they will provide an overview of social media advantages and disadvantages, associated risks and benefits, key considerations when discussing health apps with patients, appropriate online conduct, security and privacy requirements, legislation regarding advertising and testimonials, and the use of disclaimers.
