After a few months in my new job, I felt how enormous this area was and that maybe I wasn’t the right person. Then I attended a PiP meeting and I was amazed and delighted at this seemingly underground movement of dedication, diversity and information that was strong, credible and extensive. And yes it was collegial and connective!!

PiP has definitely facilitated the practical application of the evidence. Coming together and talking about it, seeing what other people are doing but also creating tools, just discussing it, has been really important.
