believe that the following rules will contribute to achieving this:

to keep postings relevant an on-topic. Most people in the field
are very busy and don't have the time or inclination to get bogged
down in irrelevance.
- please attempt
to use spell-checkers and read posts before sending to maintain
a good level of quality and accuracy
- ensure that
you maintain client confidentiality; please do not post in a way
that could lead to your residents being identified.
- while the
Forum is not open to non-registered viewers, this does not mean
that members have been vetted or identity-checked. Please bear
this in mind when posting information which could expose yourself
or your organisation to risk.
- avoid postings
that are intended to cause offence; attacks on other forum members,
inappropriate language, racist, homophobic or discriminatory language
