Consortia Care‘s social media sites offer a forum to connect with our services, with a focus on providing discussion and general awareness on our blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube pages.  That said, there are many risks associated with posting information online.  Please be aware that once you post something online, there’s the potential for thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of people to read your words, even years from now.

WE ACTIVELY DISCOURAGE YOU FROM POSTING MEDICAL INFORMATION ON ANY OF OUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES, AND ASK THAT YOU AVOID ANY DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION LIKE YOUR OWN HEALTH CONDITION, HEALTH SERVICE USAGE, DATE OF BIRTH OR PROVINCIAL HEALTH CARE NUMBER.

We make reasonable efforts to monitor participation and provide appropriate responses, in accordance with our obligations as regulated health professionals in Alberta, Canada.  Please remember that information posted on any of our social media platforms is not intended to be medical advice and should not replace a consultation with a health care professional.
