Getting Engaged in Patient Safety through Social Media

Synopsis:

Facebook, Twitter, You Tube; we are surrounded by instant information sources; the opportunities to share seem endless. How can we use all these tools, or others, to promote patient safety?  

Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) has done a great deal  of interesting work with social media. Mr. Saraga will share some of CPSI’s success,  their strategies and what social media means to them.

Presenter:

Abisaac Saraga is CPSI’s web and social media manager, responsible for the institute’s websites and social media efforts.  In his social media role, Abisaac helped jump-start the @Patient_Safety and @SafeCareLibrary Twitter accounts for CPSI, along with its Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube pages.

He has previous marketing experience with companies such as BizBash.TO, MrFranchise.ca, and Micralyne. He joined CPSI in 2009 as web coordinator.

On his own time, Abisaac operates www.glutenfreeedmonton.com, a celiac guide to gluten-free living in Edmonton.
