Feedback -

"A very enjoyable/informative, appropriate study day. I felt that I was learning the most up-to-date evidence-based information"

"Very relevant information. Simplified the interpretation process. Felt very relaxed. Great learning environment. Great sense of humour of both presenters"

"Restored my faith in spirometry training courses that they can ‘move’ with the group – be interactive and not just presented from slides"

"It’s really perfect!"

"This is the 3rd study day I’ve been to here – definitely the best.  Clarified certain issues. Makes me think about my practice in different ways.  Learned a lot.  Case studies very good/helpful.” 

“Probably the best workshop study day I’ve attended.  Thank you.”
