Social media allow healthcare professionals, institutions, organizations, industries, and patients to share stories, experiences, perspectives, engaging each other without hierarchy. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram are powerful working tools, but communicating through social media poses fresh challenges: related to privacy, conflict of interests, responsibility, iniquities. Another issue is to consider which lines of social media are the best as a learning and sharing tool.

The first Fast Forward meeting wants to be an open space for fair and pragmatic discussion about these topics.
