Working together to educate healthcare professionals

and advocate for patients

Educate and Advocate Training CPD for os

“I have done several webinars with Zoë, Andrew and Alex in the past few months. They were consistently very well prepared and presented. Great balance between evidence-based knowledge and their own clinical expertise. The information was very relevant, useful and applicable in practice. I highly recommend it!”

We provide high quality education for healthcare professionals while advocating for patients. We particularly focus on training practitioners to recognise conditions that currently have a significant delay to diagnosis for patients.

About Us.png

The Educate and Advocate Training team were brought together by a common desire to consistently further our own education to provide the best care for our patients and local community. We all have a passion to share our knowledge with other healthcare professionals and assist others in providing consistent, evidence-based practice.

We provide talks to healthcare practitioners as individual events, but we also regularly visit regional groups and clinics to provide in-house CPD. To organise an event for your group or team, please get in contact.
