Glossary of Genetic Terms
This session provides a glossary of terms associated with DNA and human genetics.
The History of, and Rationale for, Electronic Fetal Monitoring
This session describes the history of, and rationale for, fetal heart rate monitoring.
This interactive case study allows you to test your CTG interpretation skills using fetal heart traces from real labours and examine the associated clinical notes.
Introduction to e-learning for End of Life Care
This session is your guide on how to use this e-learning programme for End of Life Care (e-ELCA). It also explains why it was developed and how it can be used to support learning.
Relationship Between Palliative Care and End of Life Care
This session will describe what is meant by the terms palliative care and end of life care, and what they have in common. Two case studies will be used to explain their relevance to patients with advanced progressive illnesses, and their families.

This session highlights the importance of principles of safe practice within image interpretation and provides a general overview to the Image Interpretation project.
Image Interpretation of the Adult Skeleton
General Anatomy and Biomechanics
This session describes bone structure and its radiographic appearance, the classification of bones and joints, the function of ligaments and tendons, basic principles of skeletal biomechanics, and how these relate to image interpretation.
Image Interpretation of the Adult Skeleton
Facial Bones: Session 1
This session looks at injuries related to the facial bones. It focuses on identifying anatomy demonstrated on both diagrams and X-rays, and it offers examples of radiographic technique. Mechanisms of injury are discussed to develop a knowledge base in clinical presentations.
Image Interpretation – Cross-sectional Imaging:
Role of CT and MRI in Neurological Emergencies
This session looks at common neurological emergencies, why and how they are imaged.
