The Heart Failure Hub Scotland in partnership with SHARP has ran a series of educational meetings for health professionals on a number of Cardiology topics over the last 6 months. This has been through industry support. We have run evening meetings in NHS Tayside, NHS Lothian, NHS Dumfries and NHS Borders. In total approximately 120 people who have attended these meetings. The topics have included an update on the SIGN guidelines for Heart Failure and Acute Coronary syndromes. These new guidelines and the variety of topics generated a number of questions from the audience and feedback was positive for the meetings. The attendees were provided with a certificate of attendance to demonstrate continuing professional development. We are hoping to run some more meetings in 2017 so please get in touch in you are interested.
