Thank you, Melinda! I agree that as patients continue to get more health information from social media we must ensure that what patients are reading is reliable and accurate. The question of who should be responsible for ensuring this information is relevant and up to date raises difficult questions surrounding access to information and filtering of what individuals read through the platforms. In my view, an effective way for the medical community to educate patients is by continuing the trend of open access to information from medical journals. Eliminating paywalls and allowing the public to view studies from the source would certainly help inform the public or at least improve their ability to inform themselves.
