The descriptions of medicines will amplify your understanding, giving you an idea of their extended use in chronic prescribing.

Great first impression - professional, smart, well-designed and clear regarding the contents of the kit whether you are a professional or a complete beginner. The DVD is definitely a valuable tool as it complements the course really well. Also, as a new mum, I found that sometimes although it is not feasible to sit down and read the manual, it is still possible just to listen to the DVD whilst doing something else.
