ONA_SocialMediaBestPractices_Page_1Social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram make casual conversations very easy, and are a part of everyday life for millions including health-care professionals.

Whether you’re looking for information, hoping to exchange ideas or connect with colleagues, there is a social media platform that will work for you. But while these are online tools, you have the same responsibilities there as you do anywhere else.

As a health-care professional, you are evaluated at a higher standard regarding your “communications.” You should feel free to follow and participate in conversations on social media while ensuring you are meeting your professional standard expectations.

We’ve prepared a guide for ONA members who want to connect and join the conversation on social media. “How to Navigate Social Media Effectively: A Best Practices Primer from Your Union” includes tips, tricks and how-to guides for ONA members looking to get the most out of social media.
