ACO Continuing Professional Development – Clinical Workshops

 

Clinical Workshops  are practical demonstrations delivered in a small group environment.  These workshops are often conducted in the clinic at ACO Carlton to enable participants to practise techniques under personal instruction.  Participants are welcome to bring their own equipment. Each workshop attracts CPD points as indicated below and optional assessments are offered online for further CPD points.     

If the topic you're seeking isn't here, also check out learning opportunities on our Seminar Series, Courses & Webinar pages.
