Giving the WNGH a “Virtual Voice”
For some time now, I have been releasing regular Community Connections articles, distributing monthly CEO newsletters, and now I have decided to bring the voice of the WNGH viral. Social networking through the use of internet-based and other electronic social media tools are integrated into everyday life, and we want the WNGH to be a part of it. The WNGH will now include a blog on our website (www.wngh.ca). I will be the author of the blog and posts will include newsletters, WNGH updates and comments/updates on news within the world of health care.
The blog will also provide a platform where our patients, family members, and community members can share their thoughts on topics. We hope to use the blog as a means to open the lines of communication between the residents of West Nipissing and the WNGH. Your comments will be welcome on all posts with the agreement to the website Conditions of Use. Below are some points to keep in mind when reading and commenting on a public blog:
· The information found on the website is general information only and should not be considered an alternative to medical care from your health care provider.
· The blog and its comments are publicly accessible. Please do not share personal information you wish to keep confidential.
· You should not post any information which is defamatory, obscene, fraudulent or false. We reserve the right to remove posts and deny access if you engage in conduct that violates the law or the website Conditions of Use and is found to be offensive and disrespectful.
· We may at times provide links to other websites, photos or videos. The WNGH does not take responsibility for the content on these websites nor are we affiliated with them.
I look forward to the virtual conversations we will have and believe this blog will prove to be a great tool in improving communication between the WNGH and the community we serve.
