I really enjoyed this course. It was all interesting and delivered in a great way, it kept my attention and helped me to understand. I think it was brilliant. Thank you.
Excellent course. The way in which David delivered the information made it easy to understand. The course has definitely increased my knowledge of cancer. The information learned has, and will be used daily in my current role.
An excellent course, immediately apparent that it has been refined and honed with a great deal of thought and care, not only as to what needs to be covered, but also expertly catered towards what clinicians need to take away.
Learning both treatment strategies and prognoses for the cancers my degree had left unmentioned. The excellent explanations of staging and grading, then relating these to cancer examples reinforced these, beforehand, bizarre and technical terms to extremely understandable scales against cell stages. The additional depth of knowledge divided regionally has provided an amazing overview.
David is a superb and very gifted educator and I'm sure a great many people would benefit from attending one of his courses.
All parts of this course were useful in reinforcing the knowledge I already have and also introducing me to areas I have yet to cover. Great basic introduction to Haematology and made it less 'scary' looking!
Thanks for a very interesting, well laid out, informative and relevant course. Presented extremely well, in a friendly but professional manner which was engaging to the participants. Very interactive....although not so sure about the tests!!
