Terms of use and reference

The Kingston Health Sciences Centre glossary of terms on the Kingston General Hospital website is intended for information purposes only. Be sure to speak with a qualified healthcare professional before making any medical decisions or if you have questions about your health. We do our best to make sure that the information included is accurate and reliable but cannot guarantee that it is error-free or complete.

The glossary of terms is a living document that continues to be revised as feedback is received. It was created in collaboration with subject matter experts throughout Kingston Health Sciences Centre. Providers at other healthcare organizations, patients, families, patient experience advisors, and students from associated healthcare programs contributed to or were involved in reviewing the content and format of the glossary.  

Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC) encourages and permits the websites of other healthcare organizations to link to the “Glossary of Terms”. We ask that you abide by the following terms:  

  • Any text-only link be clearly marked “Kingston Health Sciences Centre”.
  • The link must open a page within the Kingston General Hospital site website. The page must be viewed in a browser window on its own – that is, the KGH website must not be framed by the host website.
  • The appearance, position and other aspects of either the link or the host website may not be such as to damage the goodwill associated with Kingston Health Sciences Centre or its Kingston General Hospital site.
  • Links to our glossary of terms shouldn’t suggest any endorsement or sponsorship by KHSC of your site or services.
  • The glossary of terms link must be displayed with its URL displayed in the user’s browser bar.
  • Kingston Health Sciences Centre reserves the right to change this policy at any time.

Kingston Health Sciences Centre is not responsible for the information or materials contained on the host website. Links to the glossary of terms are provided for convenience of reference only and are not intended as an endorsement by Kingston Health Sciences Centre of the organization or individual operating the host website or its content.
