Cardiac Electrophysiology Lab Clinicians Gain New Resource with Launch of Medline ReNewal Continuing Education Series
As Demand for Cardiac EP Clinicians Expands New CE Series Offers Clinicians Flexible Learning Options
By Medline Newsroom Staff | August 23, 2021
Medline ReNewal today announced the launch of a continuing education (CE) course series to help cardiac electrophysiology (EP) clinicians learn more about the fundamentals of cardiac EP lab procedures. Available through Medline, the courses are led and created by Angela Massen, senior clinical EP sales specialist at Medline ReNewal and a registered cardiovascular electrophysiology specialist (RCES) with 14 years of experience in the Cardiac EP Lab.
By 2050, it is projected that more than 5.6 million people in the U.S. will be affected by atrial fibrillation, but less than half of the hospitals in the U.S. today offer EP services. Once considered a mainstay in the cardiac EP lab of a hospital, the employee landscape is now evolving as the pandemic caused many leading cardiac EP clinicians to become traveling clinicians.
“Cardiac EP clinicians are vital to healthcare and as the industry continues to shift due to dynamic forces like COVID-19 and staffing shortages, access to educational resources are needed to meet the continuing education needs of clinicians,” says Angela Massen, RCES, senior clinical EP sales specialist at Medline. ”Medline ReNewal has deep experience working in the cardiac EP lab and our course offering reflects our in-depth knowledge of the needs of cardiac EP clinicians.”
Offered free of charge through Medline, the three courses include:
- Cardiac EP Fundamentals: This course provides students with an opportunity to earn two continuing education units and covers EP basics, including electrograms, arrhythmias, ablation, pharmacology, and pacing protocols.
- Cardiac EP Technical Education: This program gives participants access to in-depth advanced cardiac EP education, covering arrhythmias, ultrasound basics, basic intracardiac echo (ICE), carto connections, mapping basics, and troubleshooting.
- Basic Ultrasound Education: This program covers the ultrasound basics of ICE, including ultrasound basics, ICE basics, troubleshooting, and knobology.
“Cardiac EP lab clinicians are at the cutting edge of healthcare and with a lack of readily available courses, continuing education can be a challenge,” Massen continued. “Our course provides an easy to use resource created through the lens of the cardiac EP lab clinicians, so the learning is instantly applicable on the job.”
