The session will explore the role social media can play in engaging broad stakeholder groups online, including patients and HCPs. COVID-19 has accelerated the digital revolution in research and healthcare. What is best practice in pharma?  Where and when is the best place to use social media in the engagement experience? What are the Code constraints and regulatory challenges? How do we balance the risks with the potential opportunity social media poses for companies? What is our role when things go wrong?

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand what social media is and the most relevant social media channels for Pharma in the digital age.
  2. Gain insight into the opportunities and potential social media presents for stakeholder (HCP and patient) engagement in pharma.
