Training opportunities to help prevent Cardiovascular disease and hypertension

Each month, the Collaborative will be highlighting workforce development opportunities on key population health themes as part of our workforce development programme. This month we look at training opportunities for Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension.

World Hypertension Day takes place on 17th May 2022 raising awareness of high blood pressure. Across Cheshire and Merseyside around 650,000 people are thought to have hypertension, a leading cause of heart disease and stroke. Of these around 40% don’t know that they are affected or even at risk.

If you work in health and care and want to learn more about how you can help prevent CVD and make a difference then click the link below for a number of relevant e-learning courses.
