is free to all and fully accessible on the BMJ Learning home page
includes clinical scenarios, video clips, self assessment and a post module test
includes certificates for appraisal and revalidation can be printed once the module is completed
links to further information and tools such as the distress thermometer and resources for patients are also included.
