An Integrative Review of Cybercivility in Health Professions Education.

Journal Article (Review;Journal Article)

Although incivility in higher education has been widely described, little evidence exists regarding incivility among health professions students in online environments. This study aims to integrate literature on cybercivility in health professions education. The extent to which health professions students and faculty experience cyberincivility, the direct and indirect effects and actions taken after cyberincivility, and themes that guide facilitation of cybercivility are discussed. Efforts to prevent cyberincivility can be achieved through focused education on cybercivility, development of clear policies related to its consequences, and formulation of guidelines for both student and faculty behavior online.
