This free online course teaches therapists how to ensure they can offer the best standard of care post COVID-19.
How does it work?
You'll be able to read, watch and listen to multimedia and interactive resources. You'll then attend a webinar (or watch it recorded) to discuss what you have learnt, the challenges and solutions. You'll then take an assessment (multiple choice quiz) to demonstrate what you've learnt.
You can log in at any time to this self-directed learning to work through the learning course and assessment at a pace that suits you.
A certificate and digital badge are available to download once you have passed the assessment which gives 3 CPD points.
The course, webinar and assessment should take a minimum of 3 hours to complete. The 3 hours is split between the initial presentation, the additional learning/resources and the webinar. Each of these takes approximately 1 hour. If you fully engage with all the supporting resources and guidance it will take longer.
