Advance care planning is an important process that is increasingly being taken up by our community. When done well, it can help those with serious illnesses take control of their future health care. However, many people in our community still do not know about advance care planning, which means those who are likely to benefit from the process are missing out.
How can we do better?

Here is some information about what time the chat is where you are…..
Thanks Sonia, looking forward to it. I left a comment (but used another email address and not sure if it worked) asking whether there’s a ‘Twitter for Dummies’ type document we can send out to those new to Twitter to make it more likely they’ll take the plunge and participate. Cheers, John Haberecht
Great idea Palliverse and looking forward to it. I’m wondering if you have a hints page or something that can be sent to those unfamiliar with Twitter to make it more likely they’ll dive in and play with Twitter for this important event. John
Hi John, in fact we do! I wrote a Twitter 101 and 102 post a while ago on this site. Here it is.
In the article is a link to a formal talk about Twitter but I just noticed the hyperlink is a bit hard to see. The talk is by @subatomicdoc and mainly directed at Oncologists

Yes, and it was such a good question it’s worth asking twice! I would love to hear what you think of the twitter 101 article to see if it’s useful. I can tweak if not!
