EKG interpretation is a high-risk/high-reward clinical activity. Get it wrong and patient outcomes could be disastrous, exposing you and your urgent care center to liability and hefty damages claims. Get it right and you protect your patients, avert disaster, avoid liability, and save lives. Never mind that you aspire to improve your EKG interpretation skills and accuracy to become a better clinician -- the expectation is that you’ll get it right every time.
That’s why EB Medicine is bringing you The Urgent Care EKG Course, an in-depth training program focused on EKG interpretation essentials and best practices.
