#hcsm – November 14, 2010

Wrong time zone? No sweat. Don’t like Twitter.com, TweetDeck, TweetChat, or TweetGrid for #hcsm? No sweat. Forget about #hcsm this week? Well…we won’t hold it against you..for too long.

Watch the live #hcsm stream from November 14, 2010 at 8pm Central here (new window). If you missed the chat, you should be able to come back and scroll through it again, any time. (Availability of archive depends on how Twitter API is working during the chat.)

Background reading: The American Medical Association (AMA)’s guidelines for physicians in social media (read Bob Coffield‘s post which includes the text of the guidelines).


  1. This week, the AMA released social media guidelines for physicians. Are they appropriate? Do they apply to physicians only? How will they impact the next generation of physicians? How can we help them?
  2. One guideline was about ‘policing’ other physicians’ SM activity. Is this right? Should other professionals be policed, too?
  3. If you could add any guideline to the AMA list, or make a recommendation for physicians using social media – what would it be?

Don’t forget – if you’d like to submit a topic for a future #hcsm chat, you’re welcome to! Read the details on the different ways to submit a topic for a #hcsm chat.
