    Very in depth learning of anaesthesia – great course, has a great variety learning options.

  3. Jack Richardson

    A great entry level CPD for those wanting to learn more about anaesthesia. I was using this as a stepping stone to see if I wanted to go on to do further anaesthesia CPD. I am happy to say this course has left me wanting to progress my Anaesthesia knowledge even further!

  4. Jessica Kingdom

    I really enjoyed this course, the tutorials were very informative and a great way to brush up on some general knowledge which may be forgotten in practice if outside of your usual protocol. The further reading also provided some more insite into what we were looking at each week and have been great to keep if required in the future. I really enjoyed the quizzes as I like to apply what I have learnt into a test like situation to see what information has been retained and what I may need to review in the future to continue my learning.

Upon purchase you will be immediately registered to attend the course, with unlimited lifetime access.  The course will consist of four modules, where each module provides 2 hours of CPD, in the form of a tutorial, a quiz and also a selection of further reading journals, articles or book chapters.

 

The course is completely flexible, where all the learning resources are  provided immediately – it is designed for you to complete one module of 2 hours each week, however you may also opt to do the whole course in one sitting, or log in for 5 minutes once a month – it is entirely your decision.  This type of course is perfect if you are self driven and can motivate yourself to learn independently – if you prefer more structured courses, then please have a look at our online tutored courses instead.
