N.B. Please be aware that most of the following sites are US or UK based. Therefore, the protocols and procedures shown may differ in some respects from Irish CPGs.  In all cases PHECC CPGs will take preference. If in doubt consult your Instructors.

These sites are suggested as additional study aids to help you broaden and deepen your knowledge of the various body systems and the skills taught at your classes. They should not be used as a substitute for your prescribed textbooks, course notes or in-class materials.

They may also prove useful to you as points of reference and revision after you finish your time with us.
