Terms and conditions

By using myGPcommunity you are agreeing to the terms and conditions given below.

Community member Acceptable Practice Guidelines

Debate, discussion and disagreement are actively encouraged in myGPcommunity, however personal attacks, offensive or threatening comments will not be tolerated.

NTGPE takes copyright seriously, if you share a resource on myGPCommunity it is your responsibility to ensure it is not subject to copyright. If the copyright status of a resource posted to myGPcommunity is uncertain NTGPE may remove the resource.

Irrelevant content will be locked and or removed. - By all means do express yourself but remember this is a professional site and discussions and resources should remain on topic.

We encourage all community members to work together, but advertising, spamming, solicitation or commercial self-promotion is not allowed.

Community members must be aware when posting on myGPcommunity that they may be misunderstood. Care must be taken to be as clear as possible.

Community members share responsibility for ensuring myGPcommunity is a safe, welcoming and productive environment. If this is not occurring, the relevant posts or resources should be reported using the Report button above each post in myGPcommunity.

NTGPE Professional behaviour policy

Debate, discussion and disagreement are actively encouraged in myGPcommunity. We believe thoughtful discussions can be the sources of some of the most profound learning we experience, however, this must always be conducted in a respectful, courteous and professional manner.

Personal attacks, offensive or threatening comments will not be tolerated. All community members are reminded that they are bound by the NTGPE Professional Behaviour Policy and that this policy applies during interaction with patients, colleagues and peers in both verbal and non-verbal communications including electronic, social networking and online communications.

Copyright Guidelines

NTGPE takes copyright seriously, if you share a resource on myGPcommunity it is your responsibility to ensure it is not subject to copyright. If you are unsure, the best bet is to share a link to the resource in the community. Community members can then access the resource at the source, and purchase any necessary licenses.

If the copyright status of a resource posted to myGPcommunity is uncertain NTGPE may remove the resource until the copyright status has been clarified or an appropriate licence has been obtained.

Clarity of Communication

Community members must be aware when posting on myGPcommunity that they may be misunderstood. Important cues such as tone and body language are missing when participating in a discussion online, to ensure that discussions are as effective as possible, community members must take care to be as clear as possible.

Equally when reading a post, community members should make an effort to understand the intention of a post. A post, which at first reading may appear offensive, may be a simple misunderstanding. If a post could be interpreted in a different way, community members should ask themselves if in the context of the broader discussion the poster intended to be offensive.

Flagging inappropriate content

Where a post has inadvertently caused offence, community members are encouraged to resolve disputes amongst themselves. This can occur through follow up discussion posts in myGPcommunity or using the private messaging function.

If a post is clearly inflammatory, offensive or threatening, community members can use the Report function above the post. Clicking Report will display a text box that can be used to describe the reason for the report, once details have been provided, click Notify Administrator.

The report will be sent to the NTGPE administrator who will determine the appropriate course of action.

NTGPE will seek to adopt a conciliatory approach to dispute resolution. We are a community and while we recognise that disputes can occur on occasion, we aim to resolve them amicably through open discussion with all community members involved.

The report tool can also be used in other scenarios such:

  • A copyright breach is suspected
  • A resource has been submitted that should be shared with the whole community
  • A post was added to the wrong group and it needs to be moved to a different group.
