COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the implications of boundary violations and unprofessional conduct related to use of social media such as Facebook and Twitter. 
  • Recognize risks of confidentiality breaches in both personal and professional use of electronic platforms, and identify tools and decision-trees to minimize risk.
