Description

American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines into Practice is an educational initiative designed to disseminate the 2012 ACCF/AHA Guideline for the Management of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) into practice.  Presented science and clinical information has been developed by AHA volunteer content experts and vetted through the AHA’s rigorous content development, science review and accreditation process. 

 

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this online course, the learner will be able to:

 

  1. Discuss current evidence-based treatments for the management of patients with STEMI.
  2. Implement evidence-based strategies such as therapeutic hypothermia when appropriate to improve survival in STEMI patients.
  3. Identify opportunities within their own communities to improve timeliness to perfusion time from the initial 911 call.
  4. Integrate recommendations from the new AHA/ACCF guidelines for STEMI management into their practice, improving the quality of care that patients with STEMI receive.
