I'm curious how y'all are navigating confidentiality issues around health issue focused Facebook groups. Our specific example is that we run a facebook group for students with diabetes on our campus. We have one private group (where folks can have conversations about health issues, etc) and one open group (for open events, open meeting announcements, recruitment, etc). How would you suggest we navigate confidentiality related to their medical condition and connection with the open group?

Megan Kutulis (@mkutulis) responded:

In each of our Facebook groups, we include a disclaimer that emphasizes that the group is not for discussing health information or distributing health advice, and that if you have any questions, it should be directed to a physician or a member of our office staff. We also set up the groups so that posts need to be approved before being published. That way, if someone does try to post something, we can head a [...]

Social Media is the Profound Change Fueling the e-Patient World

Editor's Note: Dave deBronkart's (aka, ePatientDave) connection with MCCSM spans years. It includes serving on our External Advisory Board as well as being in our first Platinum Fellow cohort. We were proud to have Dave announce his Visiting Professor appointment to the Mayo Clinic Department of Medicine during Social Media Week 2014. At last, Dave will arrive on Monday, March 23 for a whirlwind visit that features Grand Rounds on Wednesday plus meetings with Chief Residents and the entire residency class. Here, Dave writes about the role social media has played in changing the patient-physician relationship.
