Collaboration for Outcomes using Social Media in Oncology (COSMO)
The Inaugural Meeting: Crafting Engagement to Enhance Physician Participation
The availability of online information, including through social media, has changed the way patients engage with each other and with their medical teams. The proportion of Americans who looked to the internet as the initial source of health information continues to increase, from 61% to 2008 to 73% in 2015. When it comes to cancer-specific information, nearly 40% of US adults looked for cancer information at some point, with more seeking information on the internet rather than from a health care provider. In addition, there is evidence that social media can play a role in disseminating information to patients about clinical research, and in some cases, increasing trial accrual.
The program will gather up to 150 stakeholders to discuss the use of social media in oncology. We will use a combination of didactic lectures, panel discussions, and engagement of the entire audience to cover topics relevant to this objective, including discussions on perceived risks, potential benefits, healthcare communication in the digital age, the view from patients and advocates, and the view from oncology leaders involved in clinical trials. To complement the live activity, we will expand our reach through social media interfaces on Facebook Live, Instagram Live, and Twitter.
