This is a technology enhanced module which is suitable for experienced healthcare practitioners wishing to develop their ability to use a 12 Lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) as an assessment tool in clinical practice. It will enable students to gain confidence in ECG interpretation, through the development of knowledge relating to cardiac physiology, the principles of electrocardiography and the criteria associated with conditions commonly observed on the ECG.

 

Who is this module for?

Registered healthcare practitioners  such as nurses and paramedics normally with one year's post-qualifying practice experience, who use the 12 Lead ECG as a regular part of client assessment.

PreRequisites

Programme entry requirements

 

Co-requisites

Students should be healthcare professionals who use the 12 Lead ECG as a regular part of client assessment and have normally completed the ‘Cardiac Care: Principles and Practice’ module or equivalent

 

 

Assessment

Usual assessment: Unseen examination

 

Learning Outcomes
  1. Utilise a published analysis tool to structure a systematic assessment of 12 Lead ECG recordings, demonstrating accurate knowledge of the criteria for a range of conditions that are commonly identified on the 12 lead ECG.
  2. Critically evaluate and interpret 12 Lead ECG recordings with reference to clinical data and identify further clinical assessments necessary to support findings.
  3. Apply a deep and systematic understanding of cardiac pathophysiology and electrophysiology to support critical evaluation of 12 lead ECG recordings.
  4. Autonomously appraise ECG findings in the context of accompanying clinical data and use the information to direct patient care / seek medical intervention.

 

Course length: 10 half-days
