Are you currently running your own study, or do you plan to in the future? Social media is an effective way to communicate your research, engage with patients and colleagues or as a way to support social learning.
The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) have created a toolkit to help you achieve this, in combining practical resources on how to get started and real case studies from how colleagues across the CRN are currently using social media to support their work.
You can access the toolkit here – https://sites.google.com/nihr.ac.uk/accelerating-digital/digital-enablers/social-media-toolkit
Remember for all research you are required to submit an online ethics checklist for BU ethical approval, and in the case of studies involving the NHS, sponsorship from BU and external approvals.
