Our training and education programmes support Hawke’s Bay health professionals to achieve the best possible care for patients in our region. Our courses cover a range of topics, including pain management, caring for patients with dementia, last days of life, loss and grief, and addressing your own needs as healthcare professionals.
Healthcare professionals are invited to take a look at our upcoming course and education programme, and to get in touch with any questions.
Please note that if COVID-19 Alert Levels change this could prevent the way we offer this training. We will update you accordingly.
