Robyn and I are both really looking forward to being a part of the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council’s Social Media Camp and Health Talks! events on March 7!
The all-day Social Media Camp features Keynotes, Panel Discussions and Social Media 101 Workshops from across Canada. The sessions will target specific components in social media to address questions and challenges and review the purpose and functions. Some of the topics covered include social media strategy, measurement, blogging, video production, Twitter 101 and social media for health promotion. Robyn will be joining Paul Gallant (@healthworksbc) in a session on Social Media Strategy.

The Health Talks event later that night is a short Pecha Kucha-style speaker series comprising of a blend of health care providers and the public. Pecha Kucha-style means that each speaker will tell his or her story using 20 slides, each of which will be displayed for exactly 20 seconds. The hope for this event is that Health Talks will leave you feeling inspired about what a patient-centered, quality health care system could look like in the future. I’ll be giving a short 6:40 minute look at some cool stuff happening in the healthcare + social media world.
