PET Course Contents:
Each course has been developed to meet the specific needs of different health professionals. For some professionals PET 1 is all you need; for others PET 2 will be appropriate. The courses contain a variety of educational formats including lectures, small group workshops, quizzes, role plays, debates, literature reviews and case discussion.
There are many opportunities within the courses to consider 'grey cases', share 'experience in the real world', and debate 'the evidence'.
