Social Media - what would you include in a guideline?

The National Boards will consult publicly on social media policy in coming monthsThe National Boards in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (National Scheme) will release a consultation paper on a social media policy in October/November 2012.
A draft policy has been released for initial consultation to targeted stakeholders for initial feedback
When the formal public consultation process opens, the National Boards encourage feedback from registered health practitioners and members of the community on the draft social media policy.The National Boards will publish the public consultation document on their websites, and will encourage wider distribution to seek extensive feedback.Until then, visit the News section of the National Board websites (via for updates on past and current consultations, general communiqu├ęs from National Boards, media releases and more.
If you have any ideas of what you would like to see in a social media policy please contact the Professional Officer of the ACM Sarah Stewart with your or contact National ACM
