 The programme provides a basic but essential overview of this condition and highlights the advances in paediatric care that have resulted in increasing numbers of patients surviving into adult life.

 The programme takes approximately 2 hours to complete and consists of 3 eLearning sessions:

  • An introduction to the neonate or Infant with Congenital Heart Disease
  • Acute presentations in Adult Congenital Heart Disease
