Published every four months, our Essential Knowledge Updates (EKU) take practitioners through new and changing knowledge relating to key clinical areas and best practice in primary care and are designed to support GPs with their CPD and revalidation.

The Essential Knowledge Challenge (EKC), an online applied knowledge test, helps practitoners to assess their existing knowledge, highlight their learning needs and keep their CPD up-to-date.
