Who is it for?
Although initially developed for nurses working in primary and community care, the principles of long-term condition prevention and management apply equally to all nurses and the course therefore also has relevance to those working in secondary care or considering a career move to primary or community care.
This course usually runs in summer as five full days on a Thursday. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, this course will likely run as a combination of face-to-face and online learning, but the proportions will depend on Government guidance at the time.
