Continuing Professional Development in health sciences

We offer a variety of short courses, modules and programmes for the continuing professional development (CPD) of qualified nurses, midwives and allied health professionals.

Modules are offered through a blended learning approach, making full use of technology to support students through on-line learning materials and discussion boards. Some modules also offer face-to-face study days on campus. Our CPD in nursing is designed to improve your clinical practice for the benefit of your patients and services. We use a blend of teaching methods, including opportunities for distance learning and online study.

Whatever your area of interest, please feel free to contact the CPD co-ordinator for additional information or to discuss any of our modules or programmes.
