Conference Presenters, Consider "Flipping" Your Talk/Panel/Poster Session


Presenting at a conference?

Even if it's sooner than soon, thanks to social media you still have time to generate more engagement by "flipping" your talk or panel presentation or workshop or poster session.

I've known about this tactic for a while, but have become even more convinced of its value beyond the classroom after seeing what happened when Pam Ressler (@Pam Ressler), Susannah Fox (@Susannah Fox), Colleen Young (@Colleen_Young) and I started using it two months before our Stanford Medicine X conference panel (Communicating the Experience of Illness in the Digital Age).

Here, I'll describe what's involved and offer practical tips for... flipping!

Susannah Fox (@susannahfox) responded:

One element of our success with flipping a panel for Medicine X is that we knew there was already very high engagement on Twitter among the potential audience members (see: Symplur's analytics about how #medx blows every other conference out of the water). And yes, all 4 of us are active and have overlapping as well as individual follower tribes. When I flipped my Medicine X Master Class last year, I reached out to all [...]

Should doctors or hospitals follow their patients on Twitter?

Brave New World: Your Doctor, Your Private Parts, Twitter And You

That's the underlying question Hinda Mandell, Ph.D. raised Tuesday in a post on the Boston Public Radio site, "Brave New World: Your Doctor, Your Private Parts, Twitter And You."

My gynecologist just followed my vagina on Twitter.  At least, that’s how it felt when I received email notification that I had a new Twitter follower.To be fair, maybe it wasn't my gynecologist who hit the “follow” button, but an employee at her practice. Does it matter? Because my ob/gyn’s name and Twitter handle are the same, and her Twitter avatar is her practice’s logo of a mother and child, entwined. Now [...]

"In this particular instance, I'd say that because Ms. Mandell is a public figure, she has forfeited her right to what has heretofore been considered privacy." Thank you, Meredith. Exactly. She has chosen to present her political views, craft photos and recipes to the world. If she wants to control who sees her message on Twitter, then she she should lock her account. Frankly I'd be more concerned if her auto mechanic followed her than [...]

Mayo Chiefs Name a Patient as 2015 Visiting Professor

Every year, Mayo Clinic Internal Medicine Chief Residents have the opportunity to invite a Visiting Professor to spend several days engaging in educational activities and speaking at Medical Grand Rounds. Invitations are meant to reflect upon the personal interests of the chief residents and the messages we wish to convey to our Medical Grand Round audience – which consists of trainees, consultants, and researchers across the Mayo Clinic Health System. Over the last three years, previous chief residents have selected leaders in the fields of medical education (Dr. Jeffrey Wiese), quality and safety (Dr. Robert Wachter), and the CDC’s epidemic intelligence service (Dr. Douglas Hamilton).

This year, we wanted our choice to represent a field with a similarly widespread impact on the future of [...]
