Helping talented health & performance professionals becoming amazing experts.

We help you spend your time doing what you truly love; positively impacting the lives of your patients, regardless of whether you are fresh out of university or have been in the field for 20 + years.
We know how frustrating it can be when you don't know what to do with a patient or, perhaps you know what to do and you are not getting the desired response. If you feel helpless when you are not having an impact on the problem, we will provide you with the tools needed to solve any issue.
We do this by having a team of experts with over 300 years of combined experience .
Do you feel overwhelmed with the sheer volume of research and information? Do you find it difficult to know who to listen to or what information to believe from all the different voices and opinions out there?
You could spend weeks trying to keep up to date with the 1.8 million articles each year in 28,000 journals alone...
Social media alerts typically provide you with low quality information.
We can sieve through the noise and discern the relevant information so you don't have to spend hundreds not knowing if the information is worth it. We have educated c. 28000 practitioners over 22 years by taking this information and making it clinically applicable to YOU.

Because all content needs context.
Without which it is just information.
The founding Tutors at HDPN have helped hundreds of practitioners through seminars, courses, and one-on-one mentorship.
Developed as an evolution to Health Education Seminars, (Has been responsible for educating over 28,000 practitioners in the past 22 years), HDPN is an amalgamation of the knowledge gained from HES with up to date methodologies of delivery for the modern day practitioner.
We provide high level mentorship for practitioners of all levels, a wrap around system of learning with multiple entry points and information that is easily digestible for you to learn at your own pace no matter where you are on your journey.
The HPDN team has:
- A natural blend of the “old guard” who will bring wisdom and experience coupled with some youth and energy that can bring challenges and a modern perspective on education in a practical format.
- Spent years teaching and refining the key questions that patients and clinicians need to be solved.
- Processed all the scientific information, research and articles out there so that you do not have to.
- Provide this information in simple solutions as well as being able to dive into the complexity for those that want more detail.
Simply said, we have done the work for you.
A guiding philosophy of ours is, "If you really want to understand the root cause and effect of any injury or problem; the solution is based on science, reliant upon an opinion to start, and needs artistic flare to resolve it."I'm ready to be part of this
What makes HDPN special:
This is not a one size fits all approach...why would it be when we recognise we all learn and develop differently?
We are not another content provider, HDPN provides wrap around learning with entry at any point. The content always has context to make it relevant and applicable.
Our Approach has 4 Pathways each with three pillars
- Attend the foundation for learning new skills
- Mentoring the place to grow yourself and your skills
- Online a place to be inspired by new subjects and ways of thinking
- Resources a place to reflect and consolidate (review) what you have learnt.
So stop wasting time scrolling through social media or looking for the right articles and realise the freedom of less stress, more time and happy patients.

HDPN gave me problem solving skills when the clinical picture remained unclear or when there were multiple issues. For example using VAS and Ease of movement and building a plan from a series of tests - weight bearing, non weigh bearing, isometric, mobility, stretch, perturbations etc. Finding what works best and in what order. Building a circuit from this. It was looking through a different lens. Building a clinical pattern that could be effectively influenced and improved. It also gave direction buys confidence from the athlete or patient.
