It is recommended that you do not use your full name, to protect your privacy
Can be your first name only or a pseudonym
Can include patient group name or abbreviation
- Never post personal email or phone number on the forum, use private messages for that
- Make your profile ‘Private’
- Make your posts ‘Private’
- Don’t accept ‘friend requests’ from people who do not fill out basic profile info: First name, country, connection to PMP
