Being able to identify normal and abnormal ECG findings is an essential skill in primary care but is something that can feel more challenging as time elapses after hospital training posts. This interactive half-day session led by a cardiologist and open to GPs, ANPs and practice nurses will provide an opportunity to update and re-invigorate confidence in interpreting 12 lead ECGs in primary care as well as providing advice on subsequent management. During the afternoon there will be scope to re-visit the practicalities of actually doing an ECG as a further aid to understanding and interpreting them.
