Free Virtual Webinar, 12:00 - 13:00 (BST)
You will be sent the joining instructions to the webinar the day before it is due to take place.
Have you ever inadvertently spread misinformation? Recent surveys on trust indicate two thirds of people are worried about what is real and fake on the internet and a similar proportion of people say they cannot tell the difference between good journalism and falsehoods. This is now the backdrop against which we all attempt to communicate truth, evidence and rationality. This webinar will explore the nature of misinformation and whether it could present an increasing challenge for radiation protection. A range of communication strategies, developed for addressing vaccine hesitancy in the community, will be presented to show how adaptable they are to our interests as safety practitioners or communicators. Tips and advice will be presented but no guarantees!
