Objective: To describe the increasing professional use of social media within oncology health care practice. Data Sources: Peer-reviewed and lay publications. Conclusion: Social media has changed the communication landscape over the last 15 years. An integral part of worldwide culture, oncology health care professionals can utilize social media to listen, learn, engage, and co-create to advance cancer care. Implications for Nursing Practice: Nurses must be aware of the professional uses for social media, how to use the media, and where to find evidence supporting health care social media efforts within cancer care.
