For 18 years NB Medical Education, the author and architect of THE ORIGINAL Hot Topics GP Update Course, has been the market leader in running GP Update courses throughout the UK and Ireland. We are passionate about primary care, and committed to helping busy primary care professionals practice evidence-based medicine in an easy, time efficient way.
Our teaching is focused on the patient, the problems they bring us and how best we can help them.
The "Hot Topics" course is suitable for GPs, GP Trainees and Primary Care Nurses and consists of a series of short 'TED-style' engaging presentations blending evidence and cases, followed by discussion which may have an impact on your practice. The course comes with a number of extra resources to give it incredible 'added value'.
A fully referenced book with recent summaries of the evidence for approximately 150 clinical Hot Topics commonly seen in primary care. Most of our delegates use this every day, like they use the BNF. All of the material is up to date and the material is 100% independent from any external influence.
12 months access to the on-line electronic version of the book which is instantly searchable. All the original references and resources for GPs (e.g. links to the on-line clinical calculators) and patients (e.g. patient information leaflets) are hyperlinked and just one click away.
Online access to the course webcast, so you can refresh and review all of the information you heard on the day.
A CPD tracker with which you can track your CPD, including external CPD and your work with the book. At the end of the year with just one click it will collate all of this into a single PDF summary for your appraisal.
Time is pressed and patient demands mean that we have less of it available for reading all the papers, guidelines and developments that are relevant to our work. So, we take the time that you do not have, to go through all of the literature for you and then present it in a digestible, 'bite-size' format which is both easy to retain and apply. Because we are working GPs we understand what is relevant for busy GPs and Nurses to know, and we know how to present it in an engaging way.
We surveyed our delegates on a recent course and in answer to the question:
'has new knowledge gained on the course translated into a change in clinical practice?'
97% answered yes
We hope that by attending this one day course it will ignite your enthusiasm for primary care and the amazing job that you do, as well as help you do what we all want to do: to give our patients the best possible care.
Each delegate will be presented with a certificate of attendance awarding 6 credits of CPD for the full day course.
The Hot Topics course is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Irish College of General Practitioners.
