What if I have questions?

Each page of the module has a space for you to leave a comment and start a discussion with other users. This is one way to seek answers to questions that arise from the material. Other things you could do include:

  • raising it in clinical supervision
  • contacting ADHC or other agency
  • speaking with your local psychiatrist
  • discussing it with a colleague to seek clarification

What if I have feedback?

We want your feedback, because we want to make the site as good as it can be at meeting your learning needs!

There will be an opportunity to give feedback at the end of each module, and we hope that you take a few moments to send it through. Otherwise you can always email us.
