After the UK, Qatar has logged the highest number of BMJ Learning module completions of any country during the agreement. During that period; more than 11,000 healthcare professionals in Qatar have registered and have completed hundreds of thousands of CPD modules across 70 specialty areas in BMJ Learning, with CPD credits recognized by QCHP. Modules are available in a variety of formats including video, podcast and 3D animations, all peer-reviewed and continuously updated to reflect the very latest guidance.

The majority have said that this has helped them update their knowledge and improve patient care in addition to helping them meet their CPD requirements. A large percentage expressed their wish to have continued access to such an educational resource.
