Sunday Special | Social media and the democratisation of education

Twitter is ablaze with talk of the Society for Perioperative Assessment and Quality Improvement (SPAQI). How did they do it?

This piece is a thought provoking discussion about new media and the consequences of our online world for medicine. 'The democratisation of education' is a phrase we've heard here on TopMedTalk in the past. How does direct access to information and experts in our field alter the state of play in the perioperative field?

Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen are presenting with their guest Avital O'Glasser, Assistant Professor of Medicine at OHSU, Oregon Health & Science University and member of the communications committee for SPAQI.
