The course is the first of its kind, offering a unique opportunity to become part of a global network of healthcare professionals. You will learn from and interact with like-minded individuals from around the world.

Led by educators from the School of Health Sciences at the University of Liverpool, the course features individual contributions from some of the UK’s leading nursing professionals, including:
