Guide for the use of social media in general practice
To support safe and professional social media usage by GPs and general practice staff, the RACGP has developed the Guide for the use of social media in general practice (the Guide). It provides information on social media advantages and disadvantages, risks and benefits, online conduct, security, privacy requirements, advertising and testimonials, and the use of disclaimers. More specifically, the Guide includes tips for using social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and blogs within a general practice context. The Guide contains a social media policy template which can be adapted to your practice.
