Socially Shared Health Information

Kjeld S. Hansen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


In this PhD project, I'm investigating how health organizations are sharing health information on social media. My PhD project is divided into two parts, but in this paper, I will only focus on the first part: To understand current practices of how health organizations engage with health information and users on social media (empirical studies 1,2,3) and to develop a theoretical model for how it is done efficiently and effectively. I have currently conducted and published on two empirical studies (1,2). I am in the process of collecting data for a revised version of empirical study (2) and for empirical study (3).
