Working together to educate healthcare professionals
and advocate for patients
“I have attended several of Andrew’s talks and was taught by Alex at University and I can attest to the high quality of their lectures and use of understandable and accessible format. You will come away from their courses with a thorough understanding of the research but more importantly actionable points to apply when you get back to clinic. Looking forward to seeing new CPD from these guys!”
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.
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.
