The virtual platform was developed in recognition of the fact that doctors are finding it increasingly hard to take time out from their clinical duties to attend study days and conferences. It is designed to offer bite-sized educational activities such as e-learning sessions, interesting cases, quizzes, videos and podcasts as well as allowing pre-booking for face-to-face education sessions and webinars.
