On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m., we will be hosting a virtual CME session titled “Can You Spot a Fake?: Addressing Patient Health Misinformation.” The session will cost $20 for CAFP members, and will take place over Zoom. Registration is required — please see the form below.

The speaker is Erin Willis, PhD, MPH, an associate professor in the department of Advertising, Public Relations, & Media Design at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research examines how mass media influence how we think about health. Consumers actively seek health information from a variety of sources, and Willis’s work recognizes that health beliefs are shaped over time by different influencers. Broadly, Willis’s research examines mass communication to understand how health is being presented and what topics activate attitude and behavior change from consumers. Her work is interdisciplinary, primarily qualitative, drawing on mass communication, psychology, and public health literatures in order to better understand how health communication might create better, smarter consumers. More specifically, Willis’s research examines the role theory-based health communication plays in consumers’ understanding of health and their subsequent attitudes and behaviors related to public health issues.

The session learning objectives are:

  • To understand the digital landscape and how patients engage with health information
  • To differentiate between health misinformation and disinformation
  • To understand the role of eHealth literacy in health disinformation
  • To be exposed to different strategies for combatting patient misinformation

CAFP Members can attend this session for $20. Non-members will be charged $30.

Application for CME credit has been filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Determination of credit is pending.
