Webinars 2013

GPIT Webinars

A webinar is a web seminar or presentation shown over the internet. The GPIT Group will provide a series of webinars for GPs in 2013. These will be available to be viewed from your practice or home, using a desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet computer.

Each session will take place at 13.00 and 20.00 on the day, in an attempt to allow as many GPs as possible to access them. Each one hour webinar will be eligible for one external CPD credit for professional competence.

During a webinar, you will see a PowerPoint presentation, hear the speaker and have an opportunity to put questions to the speaker.

The following are details of the first series of webinars in 2013 which have already taken place.

For further information, please contact Ms Niamh Killeen at the ICGP, email niamh.killeen@icgp.ie.
