Choosing CPD can be difficult – but we’ve made it easy for you!
The IHCAN Conferences and Summit bring world-class industry leaders almost to your doorstep.
We’ve done the hard work of choosing the best. All you have to do is turn up and soak up the learning. We provide an education-rich environment with sensible breaks and healthy food – plus you get slides and audio to review at home. And as far as CPD goes, it’s no risk: our events regularly get a 95%+ approval rating from delegates.
We’ve also put effort into making the days’ experience easy for you to enjoy with your community and network with your peers. We know this enhances the whole learning experience.
Our speakers are briefed to give you the absolute latest evidence-based “downloads”, but also to deliver clear takeaways that you can immediately use in your practice.
You’ll leave informed, inspired and ready to rumble.
There’s CPD, and then there’s IHCAN CPD: join us and feel the difference.
