The use of social media in clinical research carries many potential benefits—for example, it enables the creation of valuable support and communication networks for research participants. However, it also carries potential risks, including the possibility that participants may share information online in ways that permit themselves, other participants, and/or the research team to be unblinded to key aspects of the research data. These potential risks, as well as the practical approaches by which they may be mitigated, were the topic of the January 22nd meeting of the Bioethics Collaborative.
