About Healthed webcasts

Healthed webcasts are a valuable educational platform, allowing viewers to gain up-to-date clinical knowledge through an easy, time-efficient format. Our free web-based seminars fill a huge unmet need amongst GPs outside of the major cities for quality, accessible education. Every Healthed webcast features at least three expert lectures and runs for at least 90 minutes. While the majority of our viewers are General Practitioners, our webcasts are also drawing growing interest from other HCPs, such as pharmacists and nurses. Registrants can watch stream the webcast on a computer, tablet or phone. Instructions on how to log in to the webcast will be emailed to registered delegates in the weeks before the event.
