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 (@SusannahFox), 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!

I think it'll get better as they get younger as well! Perhaps it's a shared delusion!

SusannahFox (@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 [...]

Bunny Ellerin (@bunnyellerin) responded:

"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 [...]

Mark Hathaway - Patient/Caregiver Scholarship 2014

As an author and public speaker about the patients perspective I am confident that I have much to contribute and also much to learn at Social Media Week at Mayo Clinic. I am excited by the opportunity to share with others my experience as a coma patient who awoke to the reality of living in a world with Locked-in Syndrome where I could neither speak nor move. It took me nearly two weeks before I could signal "yes" and "no" by blinking my eyes, and six weeks before I could utter a sound and move my arm. With medical advancements more and more patients find themselves Locked-in. To my knowledge there is no support community for Locked-in Syndrome at Mayo and I would like to [...]

Hope I am not too late to vote! Read your book yesterday. I totally enjoyed reading your amazing and inspirational journey of life. I hope you get the chance to go to MN, learn, share and then start spreading the news!

Bonnie Sheeren - Patient/Caregiver Scholarship 2014

I have had many adventures in health care. I endured hit or miss interactions with the medical community most of my life up through my twenties. Ignorance was not bliss, but it was the only option.

After college, I went into educational video production, my friends talked me into coming to the Texas Medical Center. Working at M.D. Anderson Cancer as a writer/producer convinced me that patients need to know as much as possible in order to make their treatments successful. Then, being transferred to UT-Houston Health Science Center, I covered all medical topics and spent a great deal of time in the Hermann Hospital ER, documenting trauma treatments. All this would hold me in good stead during the next decade when I went [...]

I love your commitment Bonnie. I want everyone to know I have actually met you when I was in Houston on behalf of a family I was advocating for and you are as delightful as you are knowledgeable. I know if I needed someone and if I ever do, I WILL call you. I talk about you here in Austin. Good luck! peace, Deanna,

Jenny Redmond - Patient/Caregiver Scholarship 2014

I was a 39 year old single mother when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in August 2012. I had a bilateral mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, and several surgeries. I had been a fourth grade teacher for 17 years but I had to take a long term medical leave during my treatments.

Thanks to my family, friends, coworkers, and others in the community my bills were always paid and there was always food on our table. During my treatments I began painting. This began as something to keep me busy but turned into much more. It became my therapy. Little did I know at the time, it would also be a way to help ease the financial burden of medical bills and other [...]
