Communication in the Age of Fake News

As COVID-19 has shown, communication and trust with the public are essential for healthcare professionals. This multi-part series will focus on how HCPs can communicate not only with their patients, but also the public. The primary purpose is to educate learners about how to gain and maintain trust while messaging throughout a changing health crisis, learn about the influence of social media on public health messaging and how you can make social media work for you, and communicating with minorities and underrepresented groups.
