Movement Toward Health

Disclaimer and Participation Agreement

Effective date: 1 March 2021

As a potential participant in Movement Toward Health program, I acknowledge and agree to the following:

Integrative Rehabilitation Medicine, PLLC and Andrew David Shiller, MD offer educational programs, products, services, and program materials [called “Educational Offerings” in this document] that are for informational and educational purposes only.

Medical Disclaimer:  Our educational offerings are not to be perceived as or relied upon as medical advice or mental health advice. Participation in these educational offerings does not constitute a physician-patient relationship with Andrew David Shiller, MD or other providers who work for Integrative Rehabilitation Medicine, PLLC.   The information or learning are not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment that can be provided by your own physician or other health care professional or clergy. Do not disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking professional advice because of information you have received in our Educational Offerings. Do not stop taking any medications without speaking to your physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, mental health provider or other health care professional. If you have or suspect that you have a medical or mental health issue, contact your own health care provider promptly.  We are not providing health care, medical or nutrition therapy services or attempting to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure in any manner whatsoever any physical ailment, or any mental or emotional issue, disease or condition. We are not giving medical, psychological, or religious advice whatsoever. 

Because of the online nature of this learning, each participant agrees to be responsible for their own safety and well-being in learning and applying the educational materials.

We expressly exclude any liability for any direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage incurred by you or others in connection with our Educational Offerings, including any liability for any accidents, delays, injuries, damage, death, lost profits, personal or business interruptions, misapplication of information, physical or mental disease, condition or issue, physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual injury or harm, loss of goodwill, wasted time and for any other loss or damage of any kind, however and whether caused by negligence, breach of contract, or otherwise, even if foreseeable. You specifically acknowledge and agree that we are not liable for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of any other users of our Educational Offerings. 

HIPAA Disclaimer: 

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. HIPAA was passed by the U.S. government in 1996 in order to establish privacy and security protections for health information.

The Movement Toward Health program is about building your awareness and skills in managing your physiology, symptoms, emotions, and life in general.  As such, there can be great benefit to sharing with the instructor and the group, whether it be about your symptoms, medical condition,  goals, or your experience of pain or illness or how you are learning to manage them.

During Movement Toward Health, there are two main areas where you have an opportunity to share with the instructor and your peers.  That includes the Community Forum, as well as during the live training sessions.

The system which hosts the program is not encrypted to assure security of information that you choose to share.  And while we aim to build a private, supportive, and confidential community that supports your growth and healing, it is impossible to guarantee the privacy of any information that you choose to share.

In accordance with these issues regarding privacy, your acceptance of this agreement includes your agreement to the following:

  1. You agree to keep confidential, any information that you hear from other participants about their personal health information. That means that if you feel the need or desire to share something you learned or heard from someone else in the program, you will not share it together with their name or other identifying information.
  2. You recognise that there is no way to guarantee privacy of any personal information you share.  With that in minds, you  will choose to disclose or share only that information that you are comfortable sharing in a situation where privacy is not guaranteed.

Benefits Disclaimer. Many people have benefitted from the techniques and lessons shared in our Educational Offerings.  However, everyone is an individual. You acknowledge that we have not and do not make any representations as to the health, physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual benefits, that you will derive as a result of your participation in our Educational Offerings.
