Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses

Penthrox Course (Online)


EDMS have significant experience using Penthrox. We were one of the first medical providers in the UK to use Penthrox since being licensed for use by the MHRA. Penthrox is a great alternative to opioid medications in moderate to severe pain.
The EDMS Penthrox online course has been tailored for UK practice in both hospital and pre-hospital settings. It is designed for people who work for medical services who want to improve their understanding and confidence with Penthrox.
