The aim of this specific cardiovascular nursing clinical case gallery is to present real and typical clinical scenarios focusing on patient centred care. Cases discuss findings and patient management in the light of the current ESC recommendations and the Core Curriculum for the Continuing Professional Development of Nurses Working in Cardiovascular Settings (developed by the Education Committee of the Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP)).
These cases focus on patients’ holistic approach through several aspects of nursing practice since a particular case often will touch on several fields in cardiovascular care and illustrate a number of issues or guidelines.
Students, nurses and allied professionals or anyone wanting to refresh their clinical competence can test their knowledge through these cases.
