Notice to SVU Open Forum users:
While many of us feel passionately about certain topics, the SVU UConnect forum was created to stimulate collaborative discussion on all topics and to share information and opinions. But recently, some individual posts within the Community have been accusatory, defamatory, and offensive to SVU members as well as others in the vascular community, therefore those posts have been removed.
The SVU UConnect Open Forum is a members-only portal designed to promote peer-to-peer professional discussion and learning, and by and large it fills that role quite well.
As a reminder, Open Forum users agree to the Open Forum Code of Conduct, which clearly states under the rules that "All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited." In addition to pulling down offensive posts and related discussion threads, SVU reserves the right to terminate access to any user who does not abide by the Open Forum Code of Conduct guidelines.
Thank you for your thoughtful, professional contributions to the vascular lab community through participation in the SVU UConnect Open Forum.
