Feedback -

"The case studies were very helpful. Lecturers were excellent. The greatest benefit was the opportunity to ask specific questions of the experts. The value of this access cannot be underestimated! Thanks"

"Very informative, professional and explained in detail. Lots of laughs and fun as well. Provided by people with real passion who are able to encourage others to excel in their role"

"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.”
