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.

What is CPD?

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.
