  1. You are to research, compose, and type a scholarly paper based on the scenario described above. Choose one ending to the scenario to discuss within the body of your paper. Reflect on what you have learned in this class to date about technology, privacy concerns, and legal and ethical issues. These concepts must be addressed in your paper as you consider the use of smartphones and social media in healthcare. Consider the consequences of such a scenario.

Other health professionals are using the technology, and you may need to apply critical thinking skills to its applications in this scenario.
