See on Scoop.itHealth Care Social Media Monitor

To investigate patients’ and health professionals’ (a) motives and use of social media for health-related reasons, and (b) barriers and expectations for health-related social media use.

Marie Ennis-O’Connor‘s insight:

the results of this study indicate disconcordance in patients’ and professionals’ motives and use of social media in health care. Future studies on social media use in health care should not disregard participants’ underlying motives, barriers and expectations regarding the (non)use of social media.
