Sharing Clinical Information through Social Media - Todd Morgan & Dan Spratt

Dan Spratt, MD and Todd Morgan, MD discuss the role of social media in medical and scientific communication with Charles Ryan, MD.  All three agree that social media, especially Twitter, helps to provide quicker access to breaking information at congresses when it is not possible to attend the live meeting.  This communication outlet also typically provides more expert opinion and commentary that is typically not available in the publication.  However, they all point out the concern that this information cannot be over interpreted as it is not peer reviewed information.  Overall, they agree that when used correctly, social media provides timely access to breaking data.
