Help to shape HCPC guidance on the use of social media

Published: 04 May 2016 Ezine

The HCPC is holding an online workshop between 10-24 May where registrants and stakeholders will get the chance to share their ideas on new professional guidance on the use of social media.

Your feedback will shape the production of a draft document of clear guidelines and advice for registrants who are using social media, which will then go out to public consultation.

The document will also set out how the use of social media applies to the current HCPC standards of conduct, performance and ethics.

Michael Guthrie, Director of Policy and Standards, commented:

“A large number of our registrants are now using social media and networking websites in both their personal and professional lives.

“Registrants have told us these platforms can bring great benefits but also some challenges.

“As a result of these conversations we intend to produce social media guidance to give advice to our registrants who want to operate more confidently in this area whilst meeting the standards we set.”
