“Many thanks on running such an excellent course. As a jobbing elder care consultant, I was looking for practical tips and advice on common, difficult problems that I could use in everyday practice. This was exactly what I got, but also a wealth of well-presented material delivered by hugely credible and passionate speakers. I have already seen at least 2 patients on the acute take that I am far more confident in my diagnoses than I would have been before the course”.

“I would strongly advise my colleagues in falls and syncope and trainees wishing to specialize in this field to attend”

“Excellent – packed in a huge amount of information in a short space of time. I liked the active participation encouraged by many of the speakers (without being threatening), and the practical sessions were a great way to consolidate the information from lectures. A memorable course - well done!”

“Many thanks for the incredibly good course on managing the dizzy patient. It was practical, informative and fun. I am clinical lead for our department and I have recommended that all of us should attend. It is such a common problem in our clinics and I feel more confident that I am doing the appropriate things.”
