Social media presents many opportunities for pain practitioners to keep up with the pulse of what is happening in pain practice and pain policy. Thought leaders share valuable information via social media, and social media is one way patients obtain and share information about pain. This session looks at the use of social media in pain practice, discusses various vehicles of social media and how each can be used in pain practice, examines the benefits of social media for pain practitioners along with the potential pitfalls that social media may present. In short, this course will provide a road map to help navigate the benefits, burdens, and policies of social media for pain practitioners.
