A new tool at your fingertips
New year, new platform
We are proud to announce that our new secure discussion platform, PVRI Engage is now ready to be used by membership. The use case for the platform centres around allowing our members from across the globe to interact with one another in the world's first PH professionals only forum.
Topics are determined by PVRI Task Force leaders, PVRI staff and suggestions by the community. If you feel there is a missing topic that needs to be discussed, then please get in touch with one of our team or one of our Task Force leaders. Members are free to contribute to the topics as they wish.
The first major use case for the platform will be to house our abstract discussion for the PVRI2021 series. Due to the digital nature of the programme, we have built the tool to best replicate the walk-around sessions at our Congresses. Each abstract author has been given the opportunity to submit a 3-minute, 3-slide accompaniment for their work, in order to add some colour to the discussion. All accepted abstracts will be posted into the forum in early January.
By popular request, members are now able to message one another directly. These messages are secure, encrypted, and cannot be seen by our staff or other members.
The highest quality scientific discussion
Ready to start contributing? To ensure our forum meets the standards of our in-person meetings, we have introduced some gamification elements that reward quality content. For each post you make that resonates with the community, users are able to send you 'thanks' and upvote the post. Combining this with the level of your activity within the forum and reply count, a weekly leaderboard of top posters is generated.
We look forward to seeing the discussions on the forum unfold and would greatly value any feedback, as the platform is new and ready to be shaped to help enhance the PVRI conversation.
