Created by the MDU and developed in association with MIMS Learning our short courses cover areas to help you prevent and manage problems that can lead to complaints and claims in primary care.

Each activity, provided by MIMS Learning, is free and has expert opinion on key topics.  All topics are accompanied by a test to check your knowledge. Each test will provide you with 0.5 CPD credits and on completion you will get a CPD certificate. The credit award is recommended by MIMS Learning based on completing the activity and reflecting on what you have learned.
