Social Media Module

Pause Before You Post: Social Media Awareness for Regulated Healthcare Professionals is a result of a collaborative project with six other health regulatory Colleges in Ontario. It is intended to enhance your awareness of social media use in health care as well as provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your use of social media and professional behaviours, through numerous examples and case-based scenarios. 

This learning module does not replace the need to read relevant standards and legislation; rather, it helps to interpret the standards and applicable legislation and regulations, answer everyday practice questions and offers best practice suggestions.

Please note: what is applicable in Ontario, may not be applicable in other jurisdictions.
