This was a very useful session. I was pleased with the information provided and it was pitched well. It certainly met my needs.

It was good to work together in a small group.

I learnt a lot from watching others as well as being given the opportunity to build my own skill base. Even with 30+ years’ experience I found it very beneficial.

I firmly believe that we don’t know what we don’t know until you seek learning opportunities. Despite the number of years that I have been in practice I always seek new learning expanding on current knowledge. This is important in ensuring continual lifelong learning and current knowledge.

The facilitators made this both a great learning opportunity for me and made it enjoyable also.
