HAVE YOU TRIED THE NEW-LOOK CIAP WEBSITE?

The new-look site includes an updated visual identity and new features with the aim of making it easier for health professionals to access the clinical information they need, where and when they need it.

Two short video guides have been developed to introduce users to the new site and can be found by selecting ‘Training’ and then User Guides & Videos from the top menu on the new CIAP website. Or register for full day workshops to get the most out of CIAP.
