Selected abstracts from the Medicine 2.0 conference

Medicine 2.0 is an annual international conference (September 17-18, 2009) on Web 2.0 applications in health and medicine, also known as the World Congress on Social Networking and Web 2.0 Applications in Medicine, Health, Health Care, and Biomedical Research.

The congress is organized and co-sponsored by the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the International Medical Informatics Association, the Centre for Global eHealth Innovation, CHIRAD, and a number of other sponsoring organizations.

Here are some selected abstracts that caught my eye when reviewing the program:

  • Pandemics in the Age of Twitter: Content Analysis of “Tweets” During the H1N1 Outbreak

  • Young, Interconnected, Innovators Examine Strategies for Multi-Generational Success in the Era of Social Media

  • Facebook: An Innovative Influenza Pandemic Early Warning System

  • Use of Youtube for Dissemination of Information about the Potential Pandemic of H1N1 Influenza

  • Patient-Physician Communication about Internet Use: Why “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Doesn’t Work
