IMIA Social Media WG Activity – MIE2011 and TEDxMaastricht

IMIA’s Social Media Working Group will be holding a workshop as part of the scientific programme of MIE2011 in Oslo, Norway ( The workshop is titled “Towards a Research Agenda for Social Media in Healthcare and Academia”, presenters will be Peter Murray, Chris Paton, Margaret Hansen, Peter Elkin and Luis Fernandez-Luque.

The workshop will discuss the development of a research agenda around several issues, including investigating the ways in which social media are currently being used in healthcare and academia and how their use might be further developed in the future. Participants will be invited to explore ways in which social media might provide novel research tools or methods. Brief presentations will set the context for active discussion, and will be supported before and after the workshop by online discussions and other use of social media to develop the research agenda deliverables.

We will post news on other IMIA WG/SIG activities at MIE2011 and other events as they become available.
