Social Media Participation Guidelines
The Alberta Cancer Foundation encourages you to engage with our online communities through open discussions on our various social media platforms. We do make a reasonable effort to closely monitor all of our social media channels to ensure that posted content is appropriate. However, we are not always able to moderate content around the clock and respond in a timely manner to online requests for information. Therefore, it is acknowledged that all posts made to our social media platforms express the views and opinions of the individual author and not the Alberta Cancer Foundation and its employees, donors, board of trustees, volunteers, sponsors, contractors, partners or cancer centre patients.
Please remember that information posted on any of our social media platforms should not be considered medical advice and should not replace consultation with a qualified health care professional.
In addition, any information posted on our social media platforms is considered public. For your own privacy and that of your family, please exercise caution when posting any personal medical information on any of the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s social media sites and never disclose personal identifiable information such as your location, health record number or financial information.
The Alberta Cancer Foundation is not permitted to publicly provide any information about cancer patients in Alberta. From time to time, an individual and/or their family may permit a cancer story to be shared publicly that reveals some medical or personal information about the patient’s cancer journey. In this case, formalized written and signed authorization documents must be completed before releasing any of this information to the public in order to protect the patient’s privacy.
