Medical blogging -- what's your opinion?
It's time to overcome that summer lethargy and reclaim the work ethic! AJ and I are giving a presentation at the Medical Humanities Conference, hosted this year on 4 and 5 September by King's College London. We're talking about ... medical blogs. It seems sensible to sound out our esteemed readership by asking your opinions on the ethical issues facing medical bloggers. Is it fair that doctors can reveal nothing of their patients yet patients can say whatever they like about their doctors (as long as it's not libellous)? Should doctors be giving medical advice in their blogs? Are there any specific blogs you can recommend as being particularly good? We'd love to hear from you on these or any other issues pertaining to medical blogging.
