Education Affiliations and Training
Continuing professional development is an essential element in ensuring that we have up-to-date skills and knowledge in order to perform our roles in a contemporary health care setting. Ongoing education is a career long process that enhances our personal and professional growth, improves our performance and keeps us relevant in an ever-changing environment.
