Feedback from previous live events


“This was an excellent session, I learnt a lot, and have a lot of follow up reading to do, I wasn’t familiar with the GINA report and some of the other resources and websites mentioned are new to me too.”


“The webinar was great, having such a knowledgeable speaker added a lot of value and his participation in research around inhaler technique made it very insightful. I feel I now have the knowledge to improve patients’ inhaler techniques even better than before this webinar. I am studying for the IP qualification in respiratory just now, so the topic was very relevant to me. I look forward to the next respiratory session & the common clinical conditions one. Thank you for arranging these great sessions, I know it must take a lot of time and planning.”


“I really enjoyed the webinar on Inhaler technique. Excellent speaker with great knowledge and practical tips. Reinforced messages I already knew and made sense of things I was unclear on. Useful tools for further CPD and for working with patients to improve outcomes.”


“Thank you to both Johnathan and his team and Toby for an excellent webinar.”


“It’s brilliant that you have organised this session, it’s definitely an area where pharmacists can do so much more to improve care and help prevent deaths. You mooted perhaps a further session – I think this would be very worthwhile to reinforce learning.”
