Using Social Media in Healthcare Settings
Social media is ubiquitous. Online collaborative spaces such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have millions of users, many of which will be HCPC registered practitioners. Some registrants will have embraced social media to enhance professionalism, others will struggle to harness the potential and some may feel left behind. One or two may even feel antipathy towards the very idea.
This course enables you to learn how to use social media effectively in a healthcare setting, to boost your online presence.

Sarah Bodell - Since 1991 I have worked in clinical practice, service management and education. I have taught students at the University of Salford since 2003 and hold the post of Professional Lead. I am passionate about using technology to facilitate learning and connect occupational therapists globally. I have co-developed an online MSc in Advanced Occupational Therapy, lead on embedding learning technologies in the undergraduate curriculum, and co-developed an app focusing occupational balance. I am also a founder member of Online Technology for Occupational Therapy (OT4OT), now recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) as an International Advisory Group for social media.
Angela Hook - My professional career in occupational therapy started within the field of forensic mental health, moving into managing mental health occupational therapy services before entering the world of education in 2000 at University of Salford, UK where I became a Senior Lecturer in 2006. My interest in using technology as a tool to enhance learning and development has developed over time since the inception in 2006 of our MSc Advanced Occupational Therapy programme which is delivered totally online and incorporates principles of e-learning and virtual learning communities, international interaction and negotiated assessments.
I use online tools to develop professional and personal skills and I continue to learn everyday from my networks. In addition to my involvement with the OT4OT team I have been involved in a number of projects related to online technology including wikiflash, research into using Second Life as a teaching and learning opportunity and Occubuzz – an app for occupational balance.
