HHQI Heart Month Webinar: February 27, 2018

Cardiac Rehab Roundtable: Please visit the HHQI website to register and for the latest information on CE status and presentation slides as soon as they are available.
Evidence suggests hospital readmissions and all-cause mortality rates are reduced when patients who have experienced a heart attack participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program. However, even as providers are striving to improve and sustain the quality of delivered cardiovascular care, this is often a missed opportunity.

During this 90-minute educational webinar presented by the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign (HHQI), leading national experts will discuss the diseases / diagnoses that qualify a patient to participate in cardiac rehab and the services that are included. We'll also review available alternatives for those patients who are unable to attend an outpatient program.

Free Nursing & PT Continuing Education: This activity is pending approval of 1.75 hours of continuing education (CE) credit from the Alabama State Nurses Association, an accredited approver of nursing continuing education through the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation (ANCC). An application is also pending for continuing competency units (CCUs) through the Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT). To receive CE credit, participants must watch the webinar and enroll in the corresponding course in HHQI University's Cardiovascular Health course catalog to complete related coursework. Step-by-step instructions will be discussed at the end of the webinar.
