The purpose of the forum is to support research and development activities by facilitating networking across the membership. We've organised the forum into three groups which are aligned to the themes of the R&D strategy: Healthcare delivery, Patient experience and Developing the workforce. The strategy document gives an overview of what each theme is about.
You can contribute to any of the groups. Hopefully, this structure will make it easier for people to connect around common interests.
When posting, put your name at the end of the posting and please make sure you follow the core rules of netiquette to ensure that this forum is supportive and inclusive of the whole membership:
The Core Rules of Netiquette. — Summary
Rule 1. Remember the human. Never forget that the person reading your mail or posting is, indeed, a person, with feelings that can be hurt.
Rule 2. Adhere to the same standards of behaviour online that you follow in real life.
Rule 3. Know where you are in cyberspace.
Rule 4. Respect other people's time and bandwidth.
These are taken from the book 'netiquette' by Jennifer Shea. The full list of rules and explanations are here: http://www.albion.com/netiquette/corerules.html
