The HCM Academy provides free CME courses for GPs, family physicians, nurses, and community cardiology teams. The programme, created and launched in November 2021 by PCM Scientific, focuses on best practice care for people living with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). It allows users to learn directly from leading HCM experts and hear from HCM patients about their experiences.
HCM Academy offers expert-led online CME education in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy via two main learning streams: live digital CME workshops and online CME courses. This free online CME education offers on-demand and interactive learning. Multiple digital CME workshops have already been delivered by HCM specialists and to date, hundreds of healthcare professionals have attended.
The second stream of learning is the online CME courses, consisting of 6 educational CME learning modules and 5 on-demand case studies. Alongside these resources, 5 real-life patient journeys are available to view and explore. All of these resources provide greater insight into specific aspects of quality HCM care and disease management.
"I think the HCM Academy offers a substantial opportunity to improve outcomes – when you look at what is being offered, it’s truly the full gamut of disease. Whether it’s age, symptoms, or treatment, or missed opportunities. I would encourage everyone to take advantage of this unique offering via the HCM Academy" John Lynn Jeffries - National Faculty, The HCM Academy
The HCM Academy is developed in partnership with and endorsed by the HCMA and targets family practitioners, nurse practitioners, GPs, internists, and community cardiology teams across the United States of America.
