Thanks for posting this article @DanHinmon. It’s nice that Twitter is finally waking up to the issue of abuse on it’s platform. It’s sad that it took the financial pressure of a loss of a potential buyer (Walt Disney Co) to get them to take action. As many in this community know, I have been dealing with an abusive Twitter troll for years and I know many in the patient community who have similar issues. When Twitter and other platforms start taking this abuse seriously, along with real changes happening amongst lawmakers in various countries, then more people will feel these are safe spaces in which to interact. Change takes time and commitment however.

Welcome to the network to all of our new Aussie and Kiwi friends! As I said in my presentation at MayoInOz, I love learning from all of you and am happy to share my knowledge at any time. This network is such a great resource for all of us to use to stay connected and committed to our social media revolution in healthcare.

@belmac69 I loved meeting you at the residency and our subsequent interactions at the summit. It was great to be your chief resident and if I can help you at any time, please reach out. That goes for anyone who attended residency!

Jul 29, 2016 · What Are You Doing for Vacation This Summer? in Share

As someone who is in mid-winter here, I’m counting the days to my holiday in the US in August. I can’t wait to be in Michigan with family for my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary and am trying to sneak a few days to Washington DC/Baltimore too. In the meantime, I try to avoid Canberra winter by heading to the beach here every weekend. Winter beach time in Australia is perfect. White sand, warm sunshine and not another soul in sight!

the mental image of @edbennett in a panda print blouse is just too much for me to bear….

It won’t be the same without you, my friend. I will miss you hugely but promise to do double eye-rolls and will eat twice as many gluten free rolls from Victoria’s as I normally do! @cynthiamanley, @colleenyoung and I will definitely carry on your legacy — although I’m not sure if we are more Charlie’s Angels, Destiny’s Child or the three witches from Macbeth….all famous trios with their own flair and distinction!

Apr 26, 2016 · Closed Facebook Groups for Patients - Advice Please in Give & Get Advice

Thanks everyone who has commented on this thread that I started. @susanwoolner, I have used Yammer in the past but the downside was that everyone had to have the same email address domain. Has that requirement changed? @ksaustin and I had a Skype chat about this issue and I understand the concerns about Facebook constantly changing the goal posts. Due to the fact that these patients are potentially senior military I need to be very careful around security issues. Am exploring a few options including building our own platform but am still open to others if anyone else has experience or wants to weigh in. Thanks!
