Learning and development
The British Heart Foundation offers resources, CPD points and more to assist your professional development.
Your role as a healthcare professional is vital if we are to beat heartbreak forever.
As part of our drive to empower and equip you with knowledge of the best practice in cardiovascular disease management we have become a member of The CPD Certification Service.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) consists of any structured educational activity that helps professionals develop knowledge, technical skills and maintain performance standards with the objective of providing better healthcare.
Activities include attending courses, conferences and workshops, as well as self-directed activities, such as directed reading.
Healthcare professionals typically require a number of CPD points accumulated over a fixed period to demonstrate evidence of their professional development to their relevant clinical bodies.
We have developed resources that are CPD-certified. This allows you, as part of our community of healthcare professionals, to benefit and develop your professional portfolio.
We currently have four CPD-accredited resources available:
Our CPD-accredited booklet Managing Atrial Fibrillation in Primary Care addresses the key issues around atrial fibrillation management for primary care practitioners, managers and commissioners.
Our independently evaluated integrated care programme showed significant benefits from joining up services for people with long-term conditions. The CPD-accredited publication Integrated Care Best Practice includes case studies from three of the sites and offers advice for integrating your own services.
Our clinical summary An integrated approach to managing heart failure in the community explains the evidence behind an integrated approach to managing heart failure in a community setting. It includes an implementation proposal and calculated cost savings.
Our programme showed that delivering intravenous diuretics in the community can reduce hospital admissions and save NHS. Learn more using our CPD-accredited clinical summary - Intravenous diuretics in the community - which includes cost-effectiveness evidence.
