Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course from NHS Health Education England will focus on the treatment of tics and Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (GTS or TS). We will be using the material to invite the user or work group to think about the patient and parent experience and how this can be helped or hindered by the various professions and agencies working collaboratively. Equally, the experience and effectiveness of treatment can be undermined by failures to understand the disorder and its comorbidities and poor practice between professions or between agencies.

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.
