“Since COVID, there's a lack of confidence in clinicians. Those who studied during that time have so much knowledge, but they might not always have the confidence to transfer that knowledge to their fingertips. This course is about bringing those skills to the front with lots of hands-on training and discussion amongst delegates so that we can all learn from each other.”
