Social Media, Research and Community Managers

November 28, 2013

One of the best perks of my new job at ELLICSR at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is the opportunity to collaborate with a team of researchers, most notably Jackie Bender (@benderjack) and Jennifer Jones (@jjonestoronto). The potential of collaboration between research and community managers is limitless. Social media can effectively be used at all stages of research, including integrated knowledge translation, determining the research question, developing the study design, recruiting for studies, analyzing data, and disseminating and mobilizing knowledge.

In this presentation to the Canadian Cancer Survivorship Research Consortium Rounds at ELLICSR, Jackie and I explore some of the possibilities.

Here are our slides:
