Interesting read however my contract contains a social media policy which would prevent me from comment on social media. As another person cited in their review I would be interested in the legalities of comment on Social Media.

A motivating article about the benefits of social media. So many of us are bound by Privacy and Codes of Conduct around social media use. I’d be interested in a discussion about navigating those.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
