Technologists: The JNMT Twitter Club Continues in August!

August 1, 2018

The next JNMT Twitter Club (@JNMTClub) session is scheduled for Thursday, August 16, at 7:30 pm Eastern. Participants will read the article before the club meets, then discuss it on Twitter. Be sure to follow the JNMT Twitter Club at @JNMTclub and use #JNMTclub in each response during the session.

The Quality and Practice article selected for discussion is “Nuclear Medicine and Resources for Patients: How Complex are Online Patient Educational Materials?" Join this lively discussion and earn 1.0 CE while sharing your opinions on this topic in 280 characters or less! This article is published in the June issue of JNMT or you can download the PDF here. Follow-up reminders will be posted on the SNMMI website and in SmartBrief—and, of course, the information will be tweeted.

Each Twitter Journal Club session will include predetermined discussion points to help drive the conversation and assist participants with preparation for a 10-question exam (1 CE hour), which will be posted on SNMMI’s CE Center for one week following the Twitter session. A link to the exam information will be provided during the Twitter session.

So how does it work?

First, you must have a Twitter account and sign in. For those new to Twitter, Mary Beth Farrell, MS, CNMT, NCT, FSNMMI-TS, has made a couple YouTube tutorials to help you get started: Short Twitter Tutorial (5 minutes); Longer Twitter Tutorial (8 minutes).

Then follow @JNMTClub on Twitter. For the discussion, go to @JNMTClub and participate by including #JNMTclub in every tweet you write. The Club provides an opportunity for differing perspectives to be “heard”—in 280 characters or less (but tweet as many times as needed to express your view). Everyone is invited—from students to technologists working in any setting!
