Have a look at this guidance

A working group has already been developing the guidance for nhs professionals using social networking sites in their professional practice.

Link provided by Sarah Bodell, who is running an excellent entirely online MSc programme in Occupational Therapy at Salford.

The conference was reported in the informaticopia blog:


This link to a blog shows how the simplest social networking tools such as Flickr can be used in order to get people “switched on” to social networking- which I find pleasing to hear since this is my tactic!


Another interesting link, although this research is not systematically carried out and therefore the results are not reliable. This is a view of some of the staff I have worked with, who are concerned for the social implications of the people we work with on social networking sites.


So much food for thought…will digest some of this and try to formulate my thoughts more coherently.


I am an Occupational Therapist, who writes about health, particularly mental health. I am interested in social media and Web 2.0, and where these technological advances can support wellness and health.

I'm an OT called Claire. I write about health, particularly mental health, and also about Social Media and Web 2.0 technology. I am particularly interested where these two fields overlap.
I believe that we all hold the potential for Recovery- let's grow together.
