Building on the success of the Stroke Training and Awareness Resources (STARs) project, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) launched the Heart Education Awareness Resource and Training through E-learning (HEARTe) website November 29th 2013.
Phase II of HEARTe added 5 new core modules and was launched November 11th 2016 (N.B. module 13 was launched March 10th 2017).
The project has been funded through the National Advisory Committee for Heart Disease and is led by CHSS.Start Modules
The aim of the HEARTe project is to be a free heart disease educational resource that health and social care professionals across Scotland can access.
CHSS collaborated with key stakeholders and partners and developed an educational framework which aligned to cardiac specific areas. These areas were identified as priorities by the National Advisory Committee for Heart Disease (NACHD) and related actions as outlined as priorities by the Better Heart Disease and Stroke care Action Plan.
The educational framework underpins the cardiac specific content and has driven the learning outcomes for each module.
HEARTe can be used to enhance your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or to enhance your overall cardiac knowledge.
This e-learning resource is aimed at health and social care staff who may:
- be new to cardiac/heart disease - such as rotational staff or those new in post
- wish to refresh / extend their existing cardiac knowledge and skills
- be community based with a mixed pathology case load including cardiac patients
- have limited access to other cardiac specific training
The website may also be accessed by patients, carers and other members of the general public.
