Last month, Pulse Learning Seminars held their 2016 CVD event in London. The day brought together cardiology specialist GPs and leading consultants who explored the challenges faced by GPs and provided practice insight and advice to help primary care clinicians increase efficiency and improve patient outcomes. Pulse Learning Seminars are one-day intensive training days that focus on a series of key clinical areas that GPs face on a day-to-day basis. Alongside CVD, this year’s seminars have also covered mental health, diabetes, dermatology and women’s health. Topics covered on the programme included:
  • Cardiovascular risk and multi-morbidity
  • Lipid modification and appropriate management in primary care
  • Practical considerations when tailoring anticoagulation treatment
  • An interactive masterclass: GP interpretation of cardiac tests
  • ‘Have I got cardiovascular news for you’
Feedback has been highly positive, and 100% of those surveyed would recommend the seminar to a colleague. “Came out educated, confident and comfortable to change my practice to serve the patients.”- Dr Raj Aggarwal “Format just right, content-appropriate Networking and opportunities ideal within the small reception area.”- Dr Evadney Keith “Very good speakers and excellent information to use in every day practice.” – Dr Jolly John A buzzing exhibition ran alongside the seminar, featuring a selection of the top providers supporting CVD. Delegates enjoyed networking and meeting with the exhibitors during the event. Put together by the team behind Pulse magazine and Pulse LIVE, these seminars are designed specifically to give GPs a combination of in-depth clinical knowledge along with practical tips on structuring consultations, spotting symptoms, prescribing and referrals.
