    Opportunities for networking

    In terms of ideas for the new website, does anyone have any ideas around creating opportunities for networking - particularly around interacting with clinicians working within a similar field of practice. We have opportunities for those within forensic services through the Special Interest Group (SIG) - however, I am just mindful of clinicians working other areas, or perhaps those working in isolation. 

    How could we create opportunities to interact remotely? 

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
