In 2020 the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE) launched the Level 1 Echocardiography minimum dataset. This aimed to introduce Echocardiography designed to be accessible to echocardiography practitioners from a wide variety of backgrounds, and has, at its ultimate aim, the achievement and maintenance of high standards of clinical echocardiography to rule out life threatening and immediately reversible pathology in a time frame appropriate to the acute emergency patient. To ensure that appropriate standards are achieved and maintained in Level 1 Echocardiography the BSE launched a formal Accreditation in Level 1 Echocardiography process in 2022.
Echo Quality Solutions LTD. (EQS) is dedicated to education in Echocardiography and is excited to announce that we are planning to launch a series of courses. The first course will take place in Cambridge at the Churchill College in November 2023 (programme). This course has been designed to introduce delegates to focused echocardiography and will cover the British Society of Echocardiography Level 1 syllabus. It is particularly relevant for doctors involved in the care of acutely ill patients who wish to develop focused bedside echocardiography skills; most specifically doctors specialising in emergency medicine, acute medicine, anaesthetics and cardiology. It would also be suitable for junior physiologists/healthcare scientists. It will help prepare those delegates who are considering starting the BSE accreditation process and will consolidate the knowledge and expertise of those who have already begun it .
The course consists of a pre-recorded lecture series followed by an in-person, hands-on interactive teaching day.
The lecture series covers the assessment of cardiac size and function, valvular disease, volume status and the pericardium. Delegates will have access to this material for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the in-person teaching day by login into the portal once registration is completed.
On the teaching day there will be an introductory talk followed by a lecture on machine optimisation teaching (including physics of ultrasound). Thereafter the delegates will be divided into two groups (18 - 20 delegates per group) that will alternate between classroom style case based discussions and multi-station, supervised, practical echocardiography (3 - 4 delegates per station). The stations will include live models and pathology simulators.
