BTS Short Courses

The Society's strategy for education and training is:

  • to provide educational support for Specialist Trainees where this addresses gaps in the Regional Training Programmes, and to provide an annual refresher course in preparation for the SCE;
  • to provide high quality courses for multi-disciplinary audiences that are planned and delivered by MDTs;
  • to promote key messages in BTS Guidelines and Quality Standards, increasingly with a focus on Quality Improvement;
  • and to address service delivery and management development in annual workshops.
