Social Media Guidance
The purpose of this guidance is to clarify the College of Paramedics’ position on the professional responsibilities of paramedics and student paramedics in relation to social media. It provides advice on how to develop appropriate behaviours in relation to personal and professional use of this technology. It also outlines the personal and professional consequences of inappropriate use of social media.
The guidance explores the relevant legal, regulatory, and professional framework which governs the use of social media in the health and social care context.
