The curriculum emphasizes the standard of care as outlined in guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association and stresses interaction through hands-on ECG performance, case-based workshops, and immersive simulation training scenarios. Use of a focused Prehospital Checklist and Algorithm emphasizes accurate and efficient field management and reporting to the Emergency Department. Patient management in the Emergency Department is also reviewed, as optimal care requires interprofessional teamwork.
