Rising healthcare inflation, an ageing population and increasing public expectations will soon make the current healthcare system unaffordable. The NHS needs to change and move with the times. This means utilising alternative mechanisms beyond the simple face-to-face interaction. There are Healthcare workers who are keen to exploit the explosive growth of social media to engage the general public. For example, media such as Twitter and Facebook can be useful tools to seek out hard-to-reach groups or deliver information to support specific campaigns. Attendance at this course will give you the skills needed to run effective health campaigns online.
