Online community for ICU doctors & nurses

What do you use social media for? To plan parties? Upload photos? Find out the best way to tie-in a breathing tube?

For nurses and doctors working in intensive care units, there is a special online social platform to do just that. It’s called ICUConnect. It goes to show the internet is more than just cat videos, but a powerful learning tool for clinicians as well.

Kaye Rolls is a moderator of ICU connect, but she’s also been doing research on the platform for years. Kaye is a Doctoral student at the University of Technology Sydney.

You’re about to hear what it’s like when you log on to this online space, as Kaye speaks with Ninah Kopel.
