HEARTe (Heart Education Awareness Resource and Training e-learning project) is the first comprehensive, web-based, free training programme for all health and social care staff caring for people with heart disease.
HEARTe is a fantastic innovation that will enhance the skills of health and social staff and enhance the care of people living with heart disease across Scotland.
Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland has worked in partnership with NHS Scotland, British Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland and the University of Edinburgh to produce HEART-e, which is funded by the Scottish Government through the National Advisory Committee for Heart Disease.
The development of HEARTe included the expert input of multi-disciplinary professions. The resulting resource has 8 core level modules to cover a range of different aspects of cardiac disease. These interactive modules are:
- healthy heart and investigations
- primary prevention of heart disease
- stable coronary artery disease
- acute coronary syndromes
- cardiac rehabilitation
- heart failure
- palliative care
- atrial fibrillation
