Comments

A great resource - a user-friendly set of brief online or pdf tutorials, designed either as 'coffee updates' or teaching resources or a self-teaching programme that can be used in any order.
Each topic presents a brief case, and then there are a set of related activities. Topics are well-referenced. Some aspects of prescribing and planning are specific to the UK - this should be taken into account when using or referring to the resources.
