Making Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Part of Your Practice

Free, Accredited, On-Demand Training for Primary Care Practitioners

Go to Login to create a free account. Find “Cardiac Risk Assessment in Youth” at top of course list under IPH Courses.

Studies show cardiac consideration is an often overlooked area of assessment for youth and student athletes alike, with practitioners and parents largely unfamiliar with warning signs and risk factors that require follow up. Two new sets of guidelines make this course a must: the 2021 AAP Policy Statement on SCA in Youth recommends all youth get a heart screening; and AAP recommendations that youth who’ve had COVID-19 symptoms or a diagnosis get a comprehensive cardiac evaluation before returning to physical activity. Now more than ever it’s critical to incorporate evidence-based diagnostic protocol into your practice. Join this in-depth discussion to make sure you’re prepared.
