Participation Guidelines

participationWe encourage your comments on our various blogs and social media pages, and hope you will join our discussions. Please be aware that we can’t respond to every comment, particularly those that deal with individual medical cases and issues. We also review all comments before they’re posted, and those that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product will be removed.

We also strive to maintain a level of civility within our blogs and social media pages. While comments that disagree with posts or other comments or present an alternate viewpoint are fine, mutual respect for all participants must be maintained and profanity or abusive language is not allowed at any time. More specific rules and guidelines involving comments on this blog can be found on our comment policy page.

Please remember that when you post a comment to a blog, it is published for the world to see. For your own privacy and that of your family, you should consider carefully how much detailed personal medical information linked to your name you want published on the Internet.
