Impulse AF Workshops

Available till 29/01/2020

Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCGs, in collaboration with West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) welcome you to the Impulse AF Workshop, supporting practices to achieve the PCCF Standard 6: Cardiovascular disease.

The aim of these workshops is to highlight the role that primary care professionals can play in reducing the complications associated with a long-term condition such as atrial fibrillation (AF). Undiagnosed AF can lead to potentially devastating, debilitating and often fatal strokes, which are preventable in two-thirds of patients if they are appropriately anticoagulated. Poorly managed AF, in terms of anticoagulation, symptom control, and co-morbidities can lead to poor outcomes in the longer term.

This workshop will highlight how all sectors of the primary care workforce (GPs, nurses and pharmacists) can contribute to the detection and management of AF.

We have been lucky enough to secure 3 of these sessions which will take place in Bromsgrove, Worcester and Malvern at no cost to the attendees.  If you would like to attend one of these sessions please sign up at one of the following links:


3 CPD points can be attributed to your GP PDP Portfolio for attendance at this Workshop and if you complete this pre-course work prior to attending you will receive 1 additional CPD point. You will need to register to participate. The whole session takes 15-20 minutes at most and you can always dip in and out of any session at any time until completed. It comprises:

  • Cardiology Learning Needs Assessment Questionnaire (please complete before the Course)
  • Cardiology Learning Needs Assessment Course (consisting of subject areas designed specifically for you dependent on the responses you give to the Learning Needs Assessment Questionnaire)
  • A short Quiz at the end of the course 


At the end of the Quiz a Certificate of Attendance and review are provided with model answers to the Quiz and supporting references.
