New Accredited E-learning Modules for Health Professionals

RHDAustralia’s E-learning modules have now been officially accredited by the Royal College of Nursing, Australia (RCNA) and The Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).

The self-paced education package is aimed at members of the health workforce with little or no knowledge of acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD), and can be used as a revision tool for those with existing prior knowledge.

The five modules available are:

    • acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease
    • diagnosis of acute rheumatic fever
    • management of acute rheumatic fever
    • management of rheumatic heart disease
    • Michael's story, a case study.

Providing an introduction to best practise approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and management of ARF and RHD, the newly accredited modules play a significant role in the CPD (continuing professional development) of health specialists.

Completion of the modules is the equivalent of 4.5 education hours, and RHDAustralia also provides health professionals with access and links to a number of useful RHD resources. A free iPhone and Android app is available to access key information from The Australian guideline for prevention, diagnosis and management of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease (2nd edition).

For more information or to access the e-learning modules, please visit the Rheumatic Heart Disease Australia (RHD) e-learning web page.
