MOOC Advanced Heart Failure
The UMC Utrecht Center for Circulatory Health has developed a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) "Advanced Heart Failure". This MOOC offers medical specialists and general practitioners an introduction to the world of advanced heart failure care at the UMC Utrecht.
The MOOC "Advanced Heart Failure" addresses the care of patients with advanced heart failure. Advanced heart failure is a complex disease with ever-changing treatment options. The course provides insight into the patient groups with the highest risk of advanced heart failure and the criteria for referring a patient to a specialized heart failure clinic. The course subsequently describes the treatment options for patients with advanced heart failure. For this, you follow the fictional heart failure patient James in the course.
Online course for medical professionals
The purpose of the MOOC is to familiarize medical professionals with the criteria for referral and treatment options for advanced heart failure. The MOOC is a free online course for medical professionals, specialists and general practitioners. Participants can take the course online at any time and from any location. The MOOC consists of three parts and contains case studies, articles, quiz, films, animation and assignments. After completing all parts of the MOOC, the participants will receive a certificate. The MOOC is not accredited.
Education widely available
The UMC Utrecht Center for Circulatory Health has developed the international MOOC together with Elevate Health and wants to use the MOOC to make education and knowledge widely available to medical professionals. Specialists at the UMC Utrecht investigate heart failure across a broad spectrum: from supporting general practitioners in early detection to studies and treatments with supportive hearts and heart transplantation.
