‘Great the way the presentation was delivered along with good notes, it has given me a wider knowledge base that would benefit my colleagues’
‘Each module was very informative, notes were handy to have, end of module questions were helpful as set out more as an inpractice example, rather than just relaying facts, also very useful to have the correct answers and reasons for that answer, to help with further learning. Very informative course, useful for all nurses regardless of how long they have been qualified, it is always helpful to recap this area of nursing.’
