Aim of this module
This module provides trainees with the knowledge that underpins the specialist modules in Cardiology and gives trainees the tools to undertake project based learning in the workplace. This module has three sections, which include: non-invasive diagnostics, invasive diagnostics and therapeutic interventions.
This module will enable trainees to perform a range of clinical diagnostic procedures undertaken to investigate disorders of the heart, interact with patients and demonstrate safe, patient-centred practice. Trainees will be expected to undertake a range of routine procedures, build practical skills in setting up and maintaining the equipment used, produce reports, interpret results, explain procedures to patients and gain consent while developing and building their professional practice.
This module provides trainees with underpinning knowledge, practical skill and understanding of cardiac invasive diagnostics. This will support trainees in the development of practical skills in the workplace and broaden understanding of the role of these procedures in the patient pathway.
This module aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills of cardiac therapeutic procedures to provide trainees with the necessary requirements to perform roles during percutaneous coronary intervention and pacemaker implantation. Pharmacology and prescribing issues will also be addressed.
The academic parts of this module will be detailed and communicated to you by your university. Please contact them if you have questions regarding this module and its assessments. The module titles in your MSc may not be exactly identical to the work-based modules shown in the e-portfolio. Your modules will be aligned, however, to ensure that your academic and work-based learning are complimentary.
