As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many educational events are no longer taking place meaning that the opportunity to learn from others within our specialty face-to-face is no longer possible. Fortunately, a number of interactive webinars have been organised to provide the opportunity to hear from experts on an array of topics within our Specialty. We encourage members to take a look at the upcoming webinars below and engage in as many as possible during this time.
