Training Resources

Here are a series of training modules covering infections which help prescribers to help meet CPD and revalidation requirements. 

TARGET antibiotic webinar series

Public Health England and the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) have worked with primary care colleagues to develop a series of 7 free TARGET antibiotics webinars highlighting key easy actions you can take to help improve your antibiotic prescribing, and at the same time improve the patient experience and their self-care, therefore freeing up your time.

These learning modules are now available as un-facilitated learning courses, each containing PPT presentations, recorded panel discussions and a host of referenced material and learning resources.

The webinars are accredited for CPD and each module attracts 1 CPD point.  Participants can register for CPD and download their certificate online once modules are completed.

The presentation lasts 60 minutes and includes slide notes and references. It can also be modified. It may be given by GPs, microbiologists or medicine managers with an interest in antibiotic use; It can be used by less experienced presenters or within a GP practice.
