Dear all,

Thank you for expressing interest to join this international study. We are a team of clinicians / researchers from Singapore and we are glad to have you join the team.

Study timeline:
- Literature review - Feb - Mar
- Study design - Feb - Mar
- Formation of consensus panel - Late Mar - Start of May
- Design of consensus statements - Late Mar - End May
- Decision on consensus statements using the Delphi method - June
- Revision of initial statements - June - July
- Decision on revised consensus statements - July
- Development of guidelines and writing of manuscript - Late July - August

1. Be part of the consensus statement panel team (at least 2 representatives from each country) - we are aiming for at least 15 countries to be involved
2. (optional) Engage a supervisor to be part of the team as well - we are aiming for a total of 5 supervisors
