Privacy and Confidentiality
At the IWK Health Centre we recognize and respect the sensitivity of personal information and that our patients’ privacy must be protected. We understand that effective health care delivery depends on a trust between patient and care provider.
Access to your personal health information is available to those who need to know to provide care (physicians, nurses, therapists, technicians and other health professionals). When it comes to collecting and using your information we take measures to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the information.
The IWK Health Centre is committed to establishing policies and standards related to privacy, confidentiality and security of the health information it is responsible to protect.
