Hot Topics GP Update Course 2018

NB Medical, Britain’s market leader in GP education has joined forces with Medcast, to bring you a one-day, face-to-face, CPD opportunity that will have you coming back year after year. Hot Topics is a lecture style course for GPs that includes:

  • The latest pertinent medical research, GP guidelines and papers presented by GPs.
  • A series of short presentations including recent findings from the medical literature which are pertinent for GPs.
  • The presentations are snappy, focused, fun and interactive. The atmosphere is light, relaxed and friendly.
  • A detailed reference book which summarises the evidence from around approximately 150 clinical Hot Topics which are commonly dealt with in primary care. This will enable you to practice evidence-based medicine with the latest research at your fingertips.

Evidence-based medicine for primary care - fun, interactive, chunked and not-to-be-missed, especially if you don’t have time to read all the latest research.
