eHealth and Social Media: How Technology Is Changing Our Patient Relations

Nutrition and fitness apps are a quickly growing sector and many consumers are taking matters into their own hands, literally, using smartphone applications and social networks to improve their health. eHealth tools like apps, social media, videoconferencing and web-based platforms are changing the way healthcare professionals are interacting with patients. This panel of practical scientists present their findings and experiences in emerging uses of eHealth tools for education and behaviour change. The session explores how dietitians can harness these opportunities and use them to engage their patients and lead to better health outcomes.
