Education and Training

The NIPC provides a portfolio of educational and training programmes in the prevention and control of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and active lifestyles. This portfolio includes programmes designed specifically to meet workforce development needs and support continuous professional development right through to a range of formal postgraduate qualifications.

Demystifying the ECG Workshop

This course addresses the needs of primary care nurses and doctors, hospital based nurses, private and public, paramedics and other allied health professionals who encounter ECG monitoring and traces. It aims to be as interactive as possible, with participants encouraged to bring along ECGs for discussion. The course assumes no knowledge of ECG and is an excellent foundation course in ECG and rhythm recognition.

MSc Preventive Cardiology

The scientific evidence for cardiovascular disease is compelling but translating this evidence into effective patient care is a challenge.

This innovative programme in Preventive Cardiology is delivered in the NIPC Headquarters, the Croí Heart and Stroke Centre in Galway, and provides students with the knowledge and practice skills required to bridge this implementation gap and achieve the recommended lifestyle and therapeutic targets.

It is currently the only postgradute progamme in Preventive Cardiology worldwide. The MSc and PG Dip programmes aims to equip students with knowledge and skills required to make meaningful contributions to the discipline of preventive cardiology.
