Social Media in Clinical Practice

Social Media in Clinical Practice by Bertalan Mesko

The number of patients using social media and the number of applications and solutions used by medical professionals online have been sky-rocketing in the past few years, therefore the rational behind creating a well-designed, clear and tight handbook of practical examples and case studies with simple pieces of suggestions about different social media platforms is evident. *

TIP: This eBook was published by Springer which offers chapter level and full book download functionality. This allows you to download all chapters of the book in PDF or HTML format to your tablet, desktop or mobile device.
