 Chat Details

 

Hosted by CarrotLearning using #CarrotDigital

This chat is guest hosted by @WeNurses @AgencyNurse

This tweetchat is part of a day long s-learning virtual workshop on "Enabling digital professionalism in nursing" CLICK HERE to book onto this course or feel free to join in the tweetchat as a stand alone learning opportunity. 



During the past few years we have seen a huge growth in the use of digital and social media in the healthcare sector yet it was only a short time ago that Ferguson (2013) questioned whether health would start to leverage the potential of social media. The answer, some 7 years on, is still unclear.  

In the UK specifically, there are now 45 million social media users. This equates to 67% of the entire population. Of these, 39 million are mobile social media users. (Avocado Social 2019 All of this equates to a large number of nurses potentially already using it in one form or another albeit to connect with friends and relatives and the COVID 19 pandemic saw an increase in the use of digital technology in nursing. The challenge now is to capitalise on these things and enable nurses to become digitally professional. 

Being digitally professional as a nurse isn't just about what we don't do (eg not breaking the law, not sharing confidential information,or not inciting hatred or discrimination) but it's also about the positive actions we take (eg being role models, building our digital footprints, using social media to learn and grow, or building communities of practice) This tweetchat aims to explore digital professionalism in nursing and how we can enable digital professionalism in ourselves and our colleagues. 

This tweetchat lasts for 1 hour and will ask the following questions:

  • What does digital professionalism in nursing look like?  
  • What are the challenges to enabling digital professionalism in nursing? 
  • What can we do to ensure we, as individual nurses, are professional in digital spaces? 
  • Why do nurses "get it wrong" from time to time? What causes unprofessionalism in digital spaces? 
  • How do we get started with enabling our nursing colleagues to become digitally professional?

When i think of nurses who are digitally professional i think of those who are great roles models, who challenge thinking, who share ideas, who weave in lots of social media, who are digital advocates #CarrotDigital https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1314265568162312193

@WeNurses Digital professionalism is how you utilise #SoMe to present yourself, your profession and your work, to engage with others in topical issues and find support and challenge from your network. Digital leadership involves engaging others in this important work. #carrotdigital

@WeNurses Digital professionalism is no different to the values you would display outside a digital platform. #CarrotDigital
@NRCUK

@WeNurses Gosh... so many things, form a social media point of view it means being visible, accessible, using the space to learn and support - but lots more too. #carrotdigital

@JonathanCliffe8 @WeNurses on paper I would agree.... but exposure, longevity are different, as is the ability to influence and be influenced on and by masses... #carrotdigital

@puncabigail53 @CarrotLearning Hi and welcome to #carrotdigital Abbie - great to see some #punc20 joining in this eve :)
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:17
@bywateronline thank you was just thinking of all the things i missed .... being aware of digital options, being aware of digital challenges, staying within the code .... and much more i suspect #CarrotDigital
@PUNCminn6
08 October 2020 19:18
@WeNurses #CarrotDigital One of the challenges to enable digital professionalism is keeping up to date with all the technologies available, in order to provide improved healthcare for the patients.
@NRCUK
08 October 2020 19:18
@WeNurses Not understanding the enormous benefits to yourself or your team and doing what often happens under the circumstances which is banning it! #carrotdigital
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:19
Yup ! I also think there is an element around weaving digital into how we work and how we use / promote digital with the people we care for #CarrotDigital https://twitter.com/JonathanCliffe8/status/1314267665368788992
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:20
Nurses don't see it as a part of their role #CarrotDigital https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1314268088775344129
@puncabigail53
08 October 2020 19:20
@WeNurses Digital professionalism means remaining professional whilst online, and ensuring that you don't post anything that will go against the policies around social media use within your profession! #carrotdigital
@WeNurses
08 October 2020 19:21

@JonathanCliffe8
08 October 2020 19:21
@WeNurses Fear of social media... I think there is still a stereotypical image of social media being a bad thing. Despite its rise in use amongst many health and social care professionals including senior leaders and organisations #CarrotDigital
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:22
Has anyone seen The Social Dilemma ? What do you think the implications of this knowledge is for nurses and the way we use social media? #CarrotDigital
@dmarsden49
08 October 2020 19:23
@WeNurses So important to have HEI's and Health and social care providers that are supportive of their staff being visible on social media. #carrotdigital
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:23
Could not agree more #CarrotDigital https://twitter.com/dmarsden49/status/1314270166172209152

@JonathanCliffe8 @WeNurses There are some amazing digital leaders here, so accessible and visibly learning and supporting... there are other traditional leaders that avoid being here for the same reason... very telling #carrotdigital

QUESTION 3 What can we do to ensure we, as individual nurses, are professional in digital spaces? #CarrotDigital https://t.co/iHPm9Ro4BL
@dmarsden49
08 October 2020 19:25
@WeNurses I seem to recall that my reaching out into that arena started with exploration and an attending the Leadership for Informed practice course run by NHS Connecting for Health. #carrotdigital
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:25
@PUNC19Kitty It's a really interesting watch .... a bit one sided, but so long as you bear that in mind thats ok .... think it's important for nurses to realise the drivers behind the social media companies #CarrotDigital

@WeNurses I think there are some really simple guidelines floating about to help with that :) @nmcnews might be able to help :) #carrotdigital
@PUNCminn6
08 October 2020 19:28
@WeNurses #CarrotDigital As individual nurse we should make sure you are aware what you are posting online, also thinking about how you react to other posts. If in doubt, we could always refer to the NMC social media guidance.
@JonathanCliffe8
08 October 2020 19:28
I think having our Chief Nurse & Midwife as active users of social media is a huge benefit and serves as encouragement to those still a little unsure about social media. #CarrotDigital @TeamCMidO @CNOEngland https://twitter.com/dmarsden49/status/1314270166172209152

@puncabigail53
08 October 2020 19:30
@WeNurses Reluctance to use it, either due to not understanding how to, not wanting to risk it in case they break their professionalism or simply not knowing what they would use it for? #carrotdigital
@CNSSinead
08 October 2020 19:31
@WeNurses Photographs should adhere to local policy and infection control procedure including PPE and social distancing ??#carrotdigital

08 October 2020 19:33
@puncabigail53 @WeNurses This is a really interesting answer Abbie - I had not thought that people would not know what to use it for ... but i think you have a really valid point #CarrotDigital

QUESTION 4 Why do nurses "get it wrong" from time to time? What causes unprofessionalism in digital spaces? #CarrotDigital https://t.co/vVpcW3Y7CE
@KWebbNurse
08 October 2020 19:36
@WeNurses #CarrotDigital Individual fear of expressing opinions on social media, variable levels of employer engagement and support, variable understanding of NMC rules, pressure not to argue & debate, terminology all act as obstacles to professional discourse & public engagement.
@JonathanCliffe8
08 October 2020 19:36
@WeNurses Understand some digital basics. Know your platform. Know your audience and/or potential audience. Follow NMC guidance. Learn from a peer. #CarrotDigital https://t.co/l6GNshfrEU

@PUNCminn6
08 October 2020 19:39
@WeNurses #CarrotDigital Digital unprofessionalism could happen when the professionals lack of understanding the expectations of being on a digital platform. But we all mistakes, it's what we learn from our mistakes that counts.
@JonathanCliffe8
08 October 2020 19:39

QUESTION 5 How do we get started with enabling our nursing colleagues to become digitally professional? #CarrotDigital https://t.co/bg77lreYlu
@NRCUK
08 October 2020 19:47
@WeNurses Quite because they are: 1 very passionate about topics 2 very tired 3 susceptible to trolls trying to catch them out 4 ill-informed I think 4 is the minority though! (FYI Ttry looking at doctors tweeting each other) #carrotdigital
@AgencyNurse
08 October 2020 19:47
Realise that it's a long road .... and that's ok. Share the good stuff, share the guidance, offer support, let them know what's in it for them #CarrotDigital https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1314275635737563137

@WeNurses role model..... Share the value offline of the value obtained online. Give them access to what good looks like, give them the skills and set them free to learn nationally, globally and put an end to great practice being so localised :) #carrotdigital
