Free, accredited e-learning provides basic through to advanced level education on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease.

RHDAustralia has developed a suite of free online clinical education modules to improve the prevention, diagnosis and management of acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD). The modules provide basic to advanced education for all health professionals with topics ranging from an introduction to acute rheumatic fever through to surgical management of rheumatic heart disease.

The modules are endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN), Australian College of Midwives (ACM) and accredited by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Association (NATSIHWA) and Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP). On completion of the modules you will receive a certificate for evidence of continuous professional development (CPD) or continuous medical education (CME). Points or education hours are assigned to individual packages or modules. You will be advised of the approximate time commitment before starting each module.

To complete the modules you will need to register through our e-learning platform. This is a simple registration process and you can start the modules as soon as you have created your account. The e-learning platform records your progress, provides you with certificates of completion and allows you to work through the modules at your own pace. A single log-in will give you access to all RHDAustralia’s education modules. 

The content of the modules is consistent with the 2020 Australian guideline for the prevention, diagnosis and management of ARF and RHD (3rd edition) and has been developed with leading Australian experts in ARF and RHD.
