Further Learning

Study days

There will be study days throughout the year as part of the Pathway to Specialty Practice program including a deteriorating patient focused study day.

The topics have a strong clinical focus and aim to incorporate as many practical elements as possible to assist with the transfer and application of learning back to the clinical settings. Throughout the year all participants will also gain valuable experience in our state of the art Human Simulator Centre.

You are also welcome to join any of our other study days, courses or programs within the hospital or enroll in a professional development activity offered externally.

Reflective practice

You will be provided with education, frameworks and support to develop your own reflective style.
