Community rules

Please act in accordance with all aspects of these rules when using iCSP.

These rules are designed to ensure the website is a safe space for professional information exchange, discussion and knowledge sharing. 

1. Use iCSP to learn from and to support your peers

Take from iCSP what is useful BUT also give back what you can, when you can. Share your knowledge and resources on the website to encourage others to do the same. Be polite and respectful and remember that others may have a different point of view or level of understanding and experience.

2. Do not use iCSP for advertising

This specifically prohibits advertising paid jobs or professional services. Events can be advertised only within the events area, find out more.

3. Only email a discussion if your support need is urgent.

Please use in exceptional circumstances when the support need is urgent.

4. Add content just once

Save time and effort by only adding content to one area of the website. The facilitators will share content to other networks if it is relevant to do so.

5. Use workplace support first, where appropriate

Agreed support structures or procedures should be considered before seeking peer support on iCSP e.g. clinical supervision or local protocols.

6. Only seek peer support on iCSP when appropriate

This specifically excludes asking peers for help with preparing for a job interview or completing an assignment for a course of study.

7. Investigate the issue before seeking peer support.

Please check with colleagues, search the internet or search iCSP for existing content before creating a discussion.

8. Be clear, concise and constructive

Summarise the theme in the title, use simple, accessible but professional language, write out abbreviations in full, adopt a friendly tone, don't write in capitals or overuse exclamation marks and if appropriate sign off and thank people at the end. See discussion tips for more detailed guidance.

9. You are responsible for your actions

Always appraise, reflect upon and validate what you read and ensure you have a sound basis for your decisions and actions and only operate within your scope of practice. If in doubt seek guidance from clinical colleagues or supervisors or seek further evidence before acting.

10. Respect copyright, data protection and privacy

Do not distribute text or graphics that are copyright protected unless you have permission to do so. Clearly state your source if you quote a book, journal, website or other reference. Do not publish onto iCSP another person's contact details unless you have their explicit consent to do so.
