Diagnosing heart failure: a video module (1 CPD hour)
Cardiology GPSI Dr Ahmet Fuat offers key pointers on diagnosing heart failure in primary care.
This module offers GPs advice on diagnosing heart failure, including:
- Initial tests for patients presenting with suspected heart failure
- The role of ECG in diagnosis
- Applying the NICE guidelines to clinical practice
- How a history of MI impacts on the steps to diagnosis
In this module, you will watch Dr Ahmet Fuat deliver a presentation covering the above topics. This video was recorded at a Pulse clinical seminar which took place in September 2012.
The powerpoint slides will cycle through automatically as the video plays, but if you are interested in a particular aspect of the presentation, use the arrow buttons at the bottom of the screen to navigate through the slides, simply click on the slide you are interested in and you will be taken to the relevant part of the video.
After viewing the video, you will complete a multiple-choice assessment to test the knowledge you have gained. You will then have the opportunity to record your personal learning points and claim your CPD credits, which will be recorded on a certificate stored automatically in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
