I've felt that I was stuck with my ability to problem solve my most complex patients, a bit in a rut. This course has stimulated my thinking again and given me new tools and skills that have helped me get to the cause of my patients' illnesses. The ADAPT Course is very practical, it's scientifically based, and there are fantastic resources to share with patients. I have learnt that I always need to keep learning to be honest.
