Internet and social media platforms are routinely used to advertise and communicate cleft/craniofacial team services and foster community among patients with a craniofacial difference. United States based teams have widely adopted the technology to market their expertise, and international surgery groups routinely use social media to engage a broad demographic in their work; both US based teams and international surgery groups use the platforms to fund raise. While photos on websites and social media lend themselves to lay person communication, out of context photos of patients with a craniofacial difference that do not adhere to standards of medical photography can be sensationalist and potentially damaging to the dignity of the patient.

 

The purpose of this interactive session is to review the ethical considerations in advertising cleft/craniofacial team services in both the US and for international surgery groups based on principles of the Helsinki Accords and concepts of informed consent, review and discuss de-identified advertising samples and discuss initiatives among craniofacial patient advocacy groups to change how patients are portrayed. At the end of this session, learners will be able to identify 3 core ethical considerations in advertising cleft/craniofacial team services in both the US and for international surgery groups, discuss efforts of patient advocacy groups for more patient centered and patient positive images, and apply these principles themselves in creating web based and social media communications.
