"I learned more in one morning than in all my years of training."
Though I no longer run regular ecg courses around the UK, I am available should you wish to host a course.
If you need further information, or would like to book the ECG Workshop please email me at
A two day workshop on interpretation of rhythm strips and 12 lead ECG's, held throughout the U.K. and Republic of Ireland for the past 17 years. Suitable for all grades of nurses, doctors, and technicians.
The aim of the workshop is to improve the confidence and competence of those attending in the recording and reading of the ECG, through learning a systematic method of interpretation.
Review of day one.
The lesson format is used throughout the two days, with frequent use of question and answer techniques and problem solving, so as to pace the learning according to the learners needs. We make great use of visual imagery, and keep things simple by cutting out the jargon.
Evaluation of learning takes place during the afternoon of the second day. Including lunch, around three hours are allocated for this activity. The learners work in groups, solving the ECG's included in the workbook, it should be noted the 12 lead ECG's include fictitious patients, to ensure the learners consider the whole clinical picture, and not just the ECG.
During this period I frequently check progress and method of interpretation. The day is concluded by discussing the answers with the whole class.
Though this method of evaluation is informal it has advantages; it's less threatening than formal testing, individuals are given the opportunity to ask questions in a less open setting, and there is an element of competition between groups.
With around 16000 health care staff from A&E Consultant to Health Care Assistant attending, this is a truly multidisciplinary course.
