In 2017, the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Centre (CWHHC) published results from a national survey identifying the need to increase awareness and knowledge regarding the incidence, prevalence, significance, and management of heart disease in women among Canadian clinicians.
To address this need, 9 Educational Modules have been created, targeting trainees as well as healthcare professionals within cardiology, general internal medicine, and emergency medicine.
Users can access each module for individual learning, or faculty can download the tools (PowerPoints, speaking notes, and resources list) to present at their institutions.
