Getting started is easy! You go to the CareSearch Learning Management System. Here you register for the Learning System and create your login.  You will use this login each time you return to the module or if you choose to do another module.

Once registered, your own personal dashboard will be created and you can choose the module you want to begin. The dashboard also holds news items and keeps a record of modules you have completed. After completion of a module you can print a certificate for a record of potential CPD achievement.
