Social Media Guidelines:

RELIVE encourages comments, posts and discussions on our various social media outlets, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn. We do not pre-moderate comments and welcome most posts. We do not delete or censor comments unless they have content that:

  • is abusive

  • is off-topic

  • contains ad-hominem attacks

  • promotes hate of any kind

  • uses foul language

  • is blatantly spam

  • is reported as abuse

  • violates the Forum’s rules and policies

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) ensures the confidentiality and security of patients' healthcare information. Therefore, to protect patients' privacy, RELIVE will not respond to comments related to specific patients. Please remember that when you participate in public social media, your comments and/or posts may be published for all to see. For your own privacy, you shouldn't post detailed personal medical information linked to your name. We can't respond to every comment on public social media, particularly those that deal with individual medical cases and issues.

Virtual Support Group & One-on-One Session Guidelines:

Please ensure you are in a private and quiet space prior to joining a meeting or session, or use headphones. As always, your privacy and right to confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. Please be respectful and courteous to all. We reserve the right to remove any participant from a group for conduct that is disruptive or disrespectful to other members. The foundation of RELIVE online support groups and one-on-one sessions is to raise up each individual with love, hope and strength, never to denigrate or judge. Any information shared in the RELIVE online support groups should be kept within the group. If you would like to continue discussions in a personal setting, please ensure all parties involved have consented and are in agreement. If you have been instructed to attend any RELIVE support groups or one-on-one sessions by your social worker, please ensure you inform the facilitator of said groups or sessions, so they may make note of your attendance. It is strongly recommended you turn on your camera while participating in RELIVE support groups, especially if you have been instructed to attend.

RELIVE online support groups and one-on-one sessions are intended to offer a safe space to process feelings and experiences related to liver disease, liver failure (and also alcoholism and addiction recovery where relevant) and liver transplant, while receiving peer support. Communication with others you can relate to and come to trust about your condition, concerns and how you are feeling can ease loneliness, anxiety and fear.

RELIVE online support groups are educational and supportive in nature and will offer shared experiences and self-care strategies to assist patients and caregivers during difficult times. Any health care or psychological advice RELIVE support groups or one-on-one sessions offer are merely subjective and experiential and definitively are not to be considered professional or medical in any way. 

No diagnosis or treatment recommendations regarding any medical or mental health condition or illness will be offered. RELIVE online support groups cannot be a substitute for or alternative to treatment when a medical condition is present. RELIVE support group members are advised to seek professional services from licensed physicians, psychologists and health care professionals, if and when necessary. It is the sole responsibility of each attendee to refer any information in said support groups or one-on-one sessions to the appropriate medical professional before considering any action or treatment.

 

All RELIVE support groups and one-on-one sessions are held online via Zoom. To provide protection and privacy and help prevent Zoom-bombing (disruptive, uninvited gate crashers), a unique meeting ID and passcode is required to join all RELIVE support group meetings and one-on-one sessions. This information can only be obtained through personal invitation. New attendees are always welcome and can request to join us through our Site or by email: info@wearerelive.org.
