Social Media Guidelines

Many social media tools are available for podiatrists including Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other media-sharing sites. These tools can be used to improve or enhance professional networking and education, business promotion, patient care, patient education, and public health programs. However, they also present potential risks to patients and podiatrists regarding the distribution of poor-quality information, damage to professional image, breaches of patient privacy, violation of personal–professional boundaries, and legal issues. The Professional Practice Committee has therefore written a Social Media Guideline to help podiatrists avoid these pitfalls and promote best practice.
