Course Structure

Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course provided by NHS Health Education England covers bronchiectasis: definition, aetiology, history and examination findings. At the end there are two short sections discussing cystic fibrosis and primary ciliary dyskinesia (two causes of bronchiectasis). This course does not cover the treatment of bronchiectasis or the full spectrum of investigations that may be needed to investigate a patient with bronchiectasis.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
