  6. So What? • The media and online world shape our perception of reality • Twitter – continues to take off like wildfire • Businesses are watching what people are tweeting about them and responding faster than ever

  7. NASA Using Twitter • Rumors circulating that NASA found water & life on Mars • White House supposedly briefed on the matter to hide from public • NASA sends text via Twitter to 32,000 subscribers hoping to stop it • “Heard about the recent news reports implying I may have found Martian life. Those reports are incorrect"

  8. Why we Work with the Media • The public wants to learn more about health • The media are there to help sift through that health info • They need us to provide experts • We need them to help build the reputation of our doctors

  9. Some Do’s • Have a Plan • Learn what the media want • Come up with ways to tell our story in a way that meets their needs . . . • It’s about relationships with the media • Build equity during the “good times” in case something goes wrong • Because something will go wrong

  10. When Something Goes Wrong . . . • If you mess up, fess up, and then dress up.

  11. When Something Goes Wrong . . . • Get ahead of a “bad news” story (Get something out fast) • Tell the truth – tell the same story internally and externally (Remember, employees watch/read/listen to the news) • Be humane and empathetic – Show you care • Explain what’s being done to fix it • Apologize, if possible • Have a Plan B

  12. When Something Goes Wrong. . . • Message – • Home base – Your core message. It’s the one thing you want people to remember • “We will do whatever it takes to keep our patients safe. . .” • Use facts to support your home base • “That’s why we have educated all employees about . . .” • People always come first • You don’t know what you don’t know . . .

  13. When Something Goes Wrong . . . • Be positive – Use positive language • Don’t use jargon/acronyms • Don’t use marketing language • Call others – Crisis experts, legal - the more great minds, the better your ability to respond • Don’t use “no comment” • Always take the high road
