We completed our first #radonc journal club from August 15-17th, with an asynchronous chat starting Friday morning and leading up to a live discussion Sunday evening at 8pm CST. The event was well received, with 69 participants using the #radonc tag from 6 countries and 3 continents. During that time a total of 714 tweets and 1,331,424 impressions related to #radonc were shared.
Dr. Robert Olson’s (@DrOlsonOncology) joined us to discuss his article regarding radiation therapy dose fractionation for bone metastases in British Columbia, Canada. We were fortunate to have him engaged in both the asynchronous and live chat.
Given the favorable response, we will continue hosting the online journal club. We will aim for the 3rd weekend of each month. Details about the September 2014 journal club will be posted soon.
Until then, happy tweeting.
