Student nurse training improves CVD assessment

  • Comment

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment training has improved the clinical skills of 85% of student nurses, increased their confidence and enabled them to implement change in their workplace, according to new findings by Education for Health.

A total of 2,048 participants joined in CVD risk assessment training around England, which was funded by the Department of Health.

Education for Health’s clinical lead for CVD risk and stroke Ruth Westerby said: “The poster presentation adds further emphasis to the important role of quality assured education supporting large health improvement programmes. In this instance implementation of Health Checks - a government priority was implemented in a cost effective, timely and efficient manner.”

A poster entitled ‘Training people to undertake CVD Risk Assessment; an evaluation from Education for Health’ was unveiled at the PCCS Annual Scientific Meeting in Leeds on Thursday.
