A very good study day with a superb balance of listening and interaction – very informative.

Practice Nurse, Dermatology Update, June 2019

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole course. Julie was fantastic and knowledgeable, and made the sessions interactive. I found the case studies very beneficial, and the emollient session was very good. Despite being virtual, the course was very interactive we all felt welcome and involved.
