Heart Failure and Heart Valve Disease elearning available

Heart Failure and Heart Valve Disease

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and NHS England and NHS Improvement developed 4 new sessions in their Heart Failure and Heart Valve Disease elearning programme; aimed at clinicians across primary care and community settings, such as GPs.

The new elearning sessions focus on heart valve disease and include:

  • Introduction
  • Diagnosis and Management in Primary Care
  • Treatment and Follow Up
  • Endocarditis

Professor Stephen Powis, National Medical Director at NHS England and NHS Improvement commented, “The NHS Long Term Plan committed to earlier diagnosis and better support for people with heart failure and heart valve disease. Improving clinical understanding of these conditions will be a vital part of delivering this, and I would encourage clinicians to make use of these valuable elearning resources”.

Existing sessions in this elearning programme include:

  • An Introduction to Heart Failure and Valve Disease
  • How to Diagnose Heart Failure and Key Issues in an Echo Report
  • How to Optimise Management of Heart Failure in Primary Care

Each session takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and there are assessments on key learning points. Learners may download a certificate on completion of each session, to demonstrate continuing professional development.

Keep checking the programme page for the launch of 3 sessions which are currently in development:

  • Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention
  • Secondary Care Management of Heart Failure
  • End of Life Care

We anticipate that these sessions will be available from October 2021.
