General guidelines

When posting to The Network, please remember that this is a very large group. Although participating in discussions requires a logon, nothing said on the internet is ever truly private and all posts should be considered public. Nothing said here has potential for medical privilege or confidentiality.

For your own safety, we offer the following guidance and ask that you adhere to a few simple rules:

Unsolicited personal messages containing promotional material of any kind will not be tolerated. Any member who receives unsolicited private messages from a group member is asked to contact an admin. The authors of these messages will be blocked.

We ask that members are mindful of their duty of confidentiality, which extends to their own families as well as their patients. Please refrain from discussing patients or providing any information that could possibly identify a patient. Posts about specific patients will be removed.

We encourage robust conversation but will delete any posts that are considered hurtful or disrespectful to any sub groups.

To anyone posting or responding to posts containing personal medical questions, bear in mind the limitations inherent in an online forum. Please note that medical advice provided online is not covered by any medical indemnity insurance provider. Any advice provided by members is to be interpreted as general information only and is not a substitute for medical advice provided by your own treating doctor or a specialist colleague consulted in real-time under professional circumstances. By joining and participating in this group, you agree not to hold fellow members or admin liable for any adverse outcome that arises because of information posted here.
