Canadian Women’s Heart Health Education Course & Teaching Toolkit
In 2017, the CWHHC published results from a national survey identifying a 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 healthcare providers within cardiology, general internal medicine, and emergency medicine.
Content will available in French and English, in presentation (webinar and in-person Grand Rounds), and in self-directed online e-module formats.
