Free journal-based learning programme

Echo Research and Practice's free journal-based learning programme was launched in June this year (2015) as a new interactive learning experience. The programme aims to support the education of clinicians-in-training and keep senior healthcare professionals up to date with the latest knowledge in their specialty.

Selected articles now include questions that are written in collaboration with members of Echo Research and Practice's editorial board and other experts in the field. Learners will get real-time scores, including explanations of the correct and incorrect answers, be able to keep a record of the activities that they participate in, and download formal certificates of completion.

To participate in an activity, all users need to do is register online for free. The first article included in the programme is 'Non-ischaemic cardiac conditions: role of stress echocardiography'. Full text available here.
