More information

e-LPRAS provides new and complementary material to support rather than replace existing learning resources.

This peer-reviewed, evidence based e-learning is available, free of charge, to all clinicians in the NHS throughout the UK and to full members of BAPRAS. Once registered, you will be able to access each 20-30 minute session via the internet from work or home.

High resolution images, videos, animations and assessments will engage you throughout the learning process. You are encouraged to plan and record your learning and use your newly acquired knowledge to reflect on your clinical practice.
