Today we had the first of what I hope will become a regular video ‘Hangout’ over on Nurse+.
This is the first time I have participated in a meeting such as this, and it was great to catch up ‘in real life’ with some of the voices I have been following via social media.
This first meeting was basically an opportunity for us to meet with each other, introduce ourselves and have a brief discussion about how we think social media and technology will impact on our profession and our care delivery.
With Yuri’s help, I am hoping to grow these hangouts to cover a wide range of topics and conversations.
If you are interested in becoming involved and joining in on a conversation, simply head on over to Nurse+ and let us know what it is you would like to discuss.
You can watch this first hangout below:

About the participants:
Yuri Shevchouk Is a nursing student at York University (as well as freelancing as a bartender). Yuri is an enthusiastic and motivating voice over on Nurse+. I think he did an outstanding job of organising this disparate collective of nurses and moderating the talk. You are the man.
You can follow Yuri on Google+.
Rob Fraser is emerging as an innovative leader in the nursing social media and technology environment. He describes himself as nurse, author, digital tool strategist and educator.
You can check out his website and follow him on twitter.
Garry Cox is (was?) a very experienced traveling nurse who has recently settled for a few moments….only across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii.
I think we should arrange a visit no?
You can check out the view from his front door over on his website travelrngab.
