I know what a challenge it can be to learn all the knowledge you need to be a good practitioner in Critical Care- I've been there!

But believe me, once you start to get that knowledge into your head your job will become infinitely more rewarding and your patient will benefit massively.

Thank you 

 - these are great for anyone extending their practice, e.g. tACP, jACP, PA, junior Dr, Physiotherapist, etc. Get the basics of interpretation right and you’re made for life. In fact I’m going to use them for some revision.

Dr Heather Baid 


 I think you’ve done an excellent job which clearly draws from your experience and expertise with communication through online means.  Your videos are very professionally made.
Well done Jonathan because this seems to be a very engaging, interactive and informative educational resource. 


Student Nurse

Just attended a webinar hosted on Intubation - a topic I am honestly clueless about. I’ve only seen 1 intubation as a student. So it’s really good to be able to gain a better understanding. It was really interesting and very engaging, thank you!

Once you have paid for it that makes it yours to keep for as long as you like. You will be able to access it from anywhere with internet facility.

Do I get the course all at once or bit by bit?

What if I buy the course and then I am not happy with it or it does not meet my needs?

That's fine. We have all done that haven't we! As long as you get in touch with me within 14 days of purchase then I will provide a refund, NO questions asked. Take my word.
