BPM Skills e-learning
Blood pressure (BP) is a vital indicator of an individual’s health and an independent risk factor for cardiovascular and renal disease. Reliable measurement depends on using accurate devices and understanding the advantages and limitations of these devices as well as best practice procedures for measuring BP. Increasingly busy clinical environments raise the risk that accurate BP measurement may be overlooked; this is a problem identified across health services nationally and internationally and not unique to a single health discipline.
An eLearning resource has been developed by one of our ESH members, Anastasia Mihailidou and her colleagues to meet the gap in refresher training for BP measurementidentified during a survey of professional staff and students across a tertiary referral health facility, with >70% of staff not able to recall in-service refresher training for BP measurement.
The online module provides busy professionals self-directed learning without limitations of access to facilities. The module has online surveys to determine where to focus ongoing training at both an individual level and as part of the program. The eLearning module is currently part of the curriculum for the University of Sydney Medical Program and the Sydney Nursing School Program and accredited by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and GPs completing the additional evaluation form can earn 2 Category 2 CPD points.
