Event Description

The proliferation of digital content creation and dissemination, especially in healthcare, has been characterized by some as an "infodemic" of misinformation that has resulted in a significant change in the public's perception of healthcare information and services. While the Internet is typically lauded for democratizing access to information, this misinformation has actually created barriers to accessing credible healthcare information and services. (I'm sure we've all fallen prey to the WebMD effect at one point or another!) Similarly, there are recurring discussions (often on social media) around the impact of ABA-related misinformation on our field, our professionals, and our consumers. But what constitutes misinformation? And who is actually being harmed? (And more importantly, why should you care and what should you do about it?)

As Lionel Hutz once said, "There's the truth and the truth." In this webinar, I'll attempt to untangle the myriad of contingencies surrounding digital content creation and dissemination in our field from both the creator's and audience's perspective and evaluate the impact from a risk/benefit framework.
