Real Life ECGs for you to try!
Training and Support for ECG learning is frighteningly thin on the ground.

We have collected 100s of ECGs, patient symptoms and the final management choices for you to try.

Whether you are a practice nurse that is expected to interpret, or perhaps you could suggest to a delusional GP that concerns you that they try the sight. It will open your eyes, be fun, and you will learn something. It is anonymous, so only you will know the results.

It is run by Consultant Electrophysiologists (they are fancy tertiary level Cardiologists)

Pri-Med
This course looks in depth at the results of the Structured Testing Programme (STeP), a 12-month primary-care study of the effects of structured self-monitoring of blood glucose in noninsulin-treated patients with Type-2 Diabetes (Ref 1). This landmark study conclusively shows that self-monitoring of blood glucose in Type 2 diabetics, who are not on insulin, leads to significantly better long-term glycaemic control and quality of life, without increasing the frequency of self-testing. Along with the outcomes of the study, this course looks at the practical clinical lessons that you can immediately apply to the treatment of your own patients.

Upon completing this course you will be given a certificate of completion. This can be used for your PDP.

Online cervical sample taker's update
Average Member's Rating 3.0
This online update has been running for thee years and is kept constantly fresh to keep pace with new developments. It takes two and a half to three hours to complete. There are excellent contributions by hospital consultants and a wealth of information on new resources. It is suitable for all sample takers- doctors and nurses and is a convenient way to remain updated according to NHSCSP standards. At £50 plus vat it saves a huge amount of money by avoiding leaving the workplace and for PCTs to avoid paying venue and refreshment costs.
