A practical help - fear can paralyze us but we do need to face our fears of failure/ whatever causes anxiety and keep moving forward. No-one is perfect, we need to learn from mistakes & by isolating fears do some background homework to help us conquer our fears & so keep learning.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
