Position Statements

The RCM is currently undertaking an extensive review of all current position statements, with the result that some statements have been deleted and the remaining papers will be updated and, in some cases, extensively rewritten. This process will be completed by May 2014. In addition, the RCM will be producing a new range of position statements and these will appear on this page throughout 2014.

RCM position statements reflect the official organisational view on a specific contemporary issue. They are reviewed three yearly and revised as new information becomes available.
