AMA Releases Social Media Guidelines for Physicians
Health Leaders Media

The American Medical Association this week adopted a social media use policy to help physicians protect patient privacy, and physicians’ personal and professional reputations. “Using social media can help physicians create a professional presence online, express their personal views and foster relationships, but it can also create new challenges for the patient-physician relationship,” says AMA Board Member Mary Anne McCaffree, MD. “The AMA’s new policy outlines a number of considerations physicians should weigh when building or maintaining a presence online.”
