“This was a fantastic course. I've spend the last couple of months updating my continuing education, and I haven't any other course to be as comprehensive as this. I love that this course doesn't only talk about the medical model of care, but also incorporate discussed on the social determinants of health. And I especially, enjoyed seeing patient accounts first hand. This was really informative, and the information I learned about IPV within this course will comes in handy in my career.”

“This was by far the most practical course for working with individuals with brain injuries. It is helpful information that you can share with families because many have not kept up if the BI occurred a long time ago. The cost of the course is far less than any of its counterparts in the industry of senior care.”
