This half day course is designed to enable HCAs to obtain knowledge and skills in ECG recording. Its aim is to ensure that HCAs understand what it is they are recording and why accurate lead placement is important, as well as how to record the ECG and know when they have produced an adequate ECG. They will be provided with a competency package in ECG recording to complete in practice under the supervision of a nurse mentor.
