Sometimes people post things on the internet that are meant to funny or for the eyes of friends only. But once posted on the internet, nothing is sacred. Just like this blog – I’m sure it will be around and read for years due to the incredibly interesting content!

For students in the health care professions – educators have a responsiblity to inform students about what constitutes ‘appropriate’ internet / social media use and about the risks inherent in inappropriate interent use. The media is rife with stories about inappropriate use of internet and the significant ramifications for those involved. Take a look at these links:
