This editorial highlights the importance of disseminating information graphically via social media for rapid uptake by health care providers.
Individuals are facing a challenge of transferring knowledge about current best practices to people who need it most – frontline health care workers. Preventing infection and promoting psychological well-being is essential during a pandemic, especially when negative effects can be exacerbated by uncertainty. In order to disseminate information at a rate equal to or quicker than the spread of the virus itself, free open access education materials disseminated via appropriate social media channels should be utilized. One effective way to transmit this information is through well-designed infographics that are clear, concise, and practical. This communication tool has been shown to increase message retention. Successful dissemination will be affected by existing reputation of the disseminator, quality of infographic images and content, and rapid dissemination by social media platforms with professional participants.
