Long-term Cardiac Care

The number of patients surviving acute cardiac events or living to adulthood with significant congenital heart disease is steadily rising.

As our population of elderly cardiac patients is likewise increasing, recognising and meeting the longer term and end stage needs of these patient groups will undoubtedly challenge and shape the knowledge base and skills of medics, nurses and paramedics providing frontline care now and in the future.

This module therefore explores common long-term cardiac conditions and the specific needs of patients and carers living with these to enhance the  knowledge and skills of staff providing assessment and care in both acute and community settings.
