Overall, this online learning was very interesting and helpful. I could learn different aspects of becoming a good leader at the workplace. The values or traits that a leader should possess enabled me to reflect on my own leadership values.

So far , this is the very best lecture that I have seen in Ausmed. The nurse giving the lecture has left me with a lot to reflect on , as well as plenty of further reading to do. Great work, Ausmed, keep up the excellent work!

I enjoyed this video of a recorded presentation. I wish that the reference list at least and the power point was available as it was for audience in the recording. Speaker often walked wide for video view and some slides he discussed weren't what was visible - or presenter is a bit color blind - as logic didn't track. As this is my first Ausmed CPD since joining as a paid member perhaps there is an option that exists to get a readable view of the reference list. I will try to find a way. I will look into watching other links that referred to that were not in the 40 minute presentation I just watched. Overall, thank you very good.
