Posted on: May 18th, 2021 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and NHS England and NHS Improvement have launched the first phase of their new Heart Failure and Heart Valve Disease elearning programme; including 3 elearning sessions designed for clinicians across primary care and community settings, such as GPs.

Jo Churchill MP, Minister for Public Health, Primary Care and Prevention spoke at a Westminster Hall Debate on 11 March 2021 about improving awareness of heart failure. Jo said that this elearning programme was developed “to support healthcare professionals, in learning more about heart failure and heart valve disease, supporting them to better recognise the symptoms of heart failure and to diagnose, manage, and support heart failure patients”.

Professor Nick Linker, National Clinical Director for Heart Disease, stated “I am delighted to support this elearning resource, which will equip clinicians, both medical and non-medical, with the skills and knowledge they need to better support patients with heart failure and heart valve disease”.

The elearning sessions aim to develop health and care professionals’ knowledge about heart failure and heart valve disease. This includes information relating to diagnosis and the optimisation of management. Sessions take 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.
