Standardising Skills for Accurate Blood Pressure Measurement

Susie Mihailidou has led this project to develop an online learning module to meet the gap in refresher training for BP measurement identified during a survey of professional staff and students across a tertiary referral health facility, with >70% of staff could not recall in-service refresher training for BP measurement.These findings are not unique to the health facility and recognised internationally.

The eLearning module is currently part of the curriculum for the University of Sydney Medical Program and the Sydney Nursing School Program. The web version is hosted on CourseSites by Blackboard and therefore requires creating an account to access.

It is about to be implemented across all health sites for the Northern Sydney Local Health District as well as members of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation Cardiac Network and has received accreditation by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and GPs completing the additional evaluation form can earn 2 Category 2 CPD points.
