WHAT IS THE MEMBERS FORUM?
There are 2 new sections accessible only from the Members Area:-
1. MEMBERS CONSULTATION FORUM
WHAT IS IT? This is an exciting new section of the website which enables BATB members working in the field of tissue banking to take part in consultation upon relevant draft regulation or guidelines. The BATB executive officers will post the link here to view all new documents offered to the BATB for consultation as and when they emerge. BATB members may then send in their comments directly in response to consultation or they will be given the choice of additionally/instead sending their comments back to the BATB executive for inclusion in an amalgamated BATB response. A BATB response has proven in the past to have made more impact than that of a single direct response.
HOW DOES IT WORK? There will be links added to enable viewing or downloading of all relevant consultation documents. Please click here soon to view the documents open for consultation
2. MEMBERS DISCUSSION GROUPS
WHAT IS IT? We understand tissue bankers find it hard to find time and financial support to attend BATBo other scientific meetings or other training days. So, this is another exciting area of the website which is intended to encourage discussion between BATB members about any tissue banking issues, or relevant topical news and events. It will enable tissue bankers working anywhere in the UK or Ireland to network with other members working in similar or quite different fields of tissue banking.
HOW DOES IT WORK? There will shortly be a number of articles (or 'strings') written by BATB members posted here (along with along with links to scientific articles if relevant). The strings will be intended to stimulate on line discussion.
BATB members are encouraged to send in their comments electronically to the author. After an editorial checking procedure, these comments will be released live on the website. The small editorial team staff will endeavour to facilitate the checking procedure as soon as they possibly can following the receipt of the members comments. The editorial team retain the right to refuse to release members comments if they consider them to deflammatory or insensitive.
Please see next tab for preview of the Discussion groups ......
