This interactive course led by a cardiologist is open to GPs, ANPs and practice nurses and will provide an opportunity to update and re-invigorate confidence in two important areas of cardiology. The course is available as a full day while both sessions also suitable to attend individually.
We have an ageing population often living with a range of co-morbidity including heart failure. The majority of these patients can be successfully managed in the community. The morning session will review the important principles in diagnosis and management of heart including and consider recent guidance and developments in treatment. Case studies will be used to reinforce knowledge and increase clinician confidence.
Being able to identify normal and abnormal ECG findings is an essential skill in primary care but is something that can feel more challenging as time passes after hospital training posts. Using real ECG examples, the interactive afternoon will revisit the principles and practice of interpreting 12 lead ECGs as well as providing advice on subsequent management.
