Indigenous cardiovascular health continuing professional development (CPD)



The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) in conjunction with the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ) has developed three web based, interactive modules, focusing on cardiovascular disease and healthcare in Indigenous rural and remote communities.

These modules provide continuing professional development for health professionals involved in healthcare for Indigenous Australians. The modules are targeted at 15,000 specialist physicians and trainees, and 500 specialist cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons.

The key topic areas covered in the modules include:

The online modules include video and audio footage, and are interactive, incorporating a question and answer format and further reading.

This project has been funded by the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) under the Rural Health Continuing Education sub-program (RHCE) stream one program which is managed by the Committee of Presidents of Medical Colleges.
