Some of the feedback we received from users who have taken our online training course.
This was a fantastic course. Emily and Lindsay thought of everything from the materials in the post to the extensive and thorough course materials. It was brilliant!
I absolutely loved the compassion and humility throughout the course and the deep respect for not only the babies, but the parents (and staff). It beautifully held the babies at the centre of a bigger picture and one based in real life.
I actually liked that it was online, so that I could pause, rewind, replay as much as I needed to get the notes down. The resources sheets and references are hugely helpful, as is the workbook.
I would absolutely recommend this course to EVERY nurse on our unit and actually within the children's hospital too. It was full of so many interesting insights and advice alongside knowledge and evidence.
