Innovation Station – Episode 5

This episode explores whether social media can be a force for good in healthcare, or if online platforms may exacerbate negative health behaviours by patients and the public.

We are joined by Dr Serge Sharoff, Dr Christina Phillips and Souad Boumechaal from the University of Leeds to discuss the prominence of harmful disinformation across social media platforms. We also pleased to be joined by Dr Ben Allen, Sheffield GP and Clinical Director of Primary Care, who is harnessing the potential of online forums to engage with patients.
