I recently posted about online resources for lifelong learning. This is a very important topic as emerging technology continues to be a part of medicine. Just last month, I was privileged to be an author for one article on Live Tweeting in Medicine, within an entire issue of a medical journal focusing on social media. The guest editor, Dr. Meg Chisolm, has worked with the journal, International Review of Psychiatry, to make the entire issue free open access from now until the end of June 2015. This is extremely exciting as it makes available to all some wonderful reviews of social media within medicine in a variety of contexts. I encourage you to take advantage of reviewing these articles, and saving them as resources. The link to the entire issue of the journal (with free access to all articles full-text through June 2015) is here.
In addition, a Twitter chat discussing pertinent issues of social media in medicine, under the hashtag #nephJC will take place on June 16, 2015 at 9 pm EST, and again at 8 pm GMT on June 17, 2015 (as a time more conducive for our colleagues in Europe/Africa). Many of the authors from this issue will be tweeting in during that discussion.
This is a leading example of sharing materials for lifelong learning for all. Please share via social media to demonstrate the impact that social media can have!
