The Institute for Knowledge Translation (iKT) has a legal and ethical responsibility to safeguard the confidentiality of all information obtained and created during the normal course of business.  I understand that, in the course of my work, I may learn information which is confidential under federal and state law or which is considered confidential and/or proprietary by IKT, including but not limited to patient medical information, other information considered personal by patients and their families, etc.  I agree to keep confidential all such information, whether verbal, written or computerized, which I learn in the course of my work at IKT.  I will not discuss patient or family information with anyone not immediately concerned with or involved with a particular patient’s care or treatment.  I will not discuss patient information or organizational information with anyone who does not have a business need to know.  In addition, I will not discuss patient or organizational information in public areas.
