Doctors are using TikTok to blow off steam and educate teens

This article explains how two doctors and a pediatric nurse use TikTok to educate teens.

Maybe there's a place for TikTok in healthcare after all? Anyone experimenting with TikTok?

Interesting article. A whole new way of dispensing medical advice, in tune with the times. Directing that advice to teens where most of their parents aren't hopefully provides them a voice they will hear.

I imagine these medical professionals are all fully thinking about the fact everything on the internet is forever so when they 'blow off steam' it is something they don't care that their future patients will all be able to see far into the future. Personally I've always believed it was best to blow off steam about one's career in private — either by talking to the wall or to a sympathetic spouse.

A general observation. I think physicians need to very careful with sharing medical information online, doubly so if trying to do it in a casual manner,

Hear! Hear! on the counseling @matthewrehrl Short sighted on my part overlooking the importance of counseling in times of job stress — and others stressors! In my wife and my case we saw a counselor for over 15 years. Helped immensely with our mental health, understanding of ourselves, and often others.
