    How should we use the site?

    The course has been designed to cover a broad syllabus of critical appraisal. The structure of the modules takes the user through the syllabus in a logical fashion with examples of clinical practice. The user should listen to the podcast and then answer the associated questions to consolidate their learning.

    Once all modules have been answered the user can complete the ‘final quiz’. This will then release a certificate of completion and recognition of time spent on CPD.

    How long will a user have access to the course for?

    You will be assigned either 6 weeks or 6 months access to the course.

    If the unlikely scenario were to arise that the server went down, we would extend your membership to the site to reflect this lost time.
