This learning module was produced in collaboration with six other health regulatory Colleges in Ontario. Numerous examples and case-based scenarios are included to illustrate social media use in health care and to help you reflect on your own use of social media in dietetic practice.

The module does not replace your professional obligation to read relevant standards and legislation; rather it reviews the professional standards of practice, the legislation and the principles you need to know to establish risk management strategies to help maintain a professional reputation and appropriate professional relationships in your practice. It also answers everyday practice questions and offers best practice suggestions for using social media.
