FutureLearn: ECG Assessment: an Introduction for Healthcare Providers

 with  Jo Gregory

##

The electrocardiograph (also known as electrocardiogram) or ECG is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure, used to assess people with known or suspected heart disease, in a variety of healthcare settings. Competent recording, reading and interpretation is vital to ensure safe and effective care, yet ECGs are often undertaken by unqualified and junior staff, who have received little training.

This course will equip you with an introductory understanding of ECG assessment and interpretation, preparing you for the further hands-on training needed to carry out ECG assessments in clinical practice.

This course is suitable for a range of existing healthcare providers, including qualified and student nurses, paramedics and support workers.
