Continuing Professional Development

The Continue Professional Development Series is a specialised program for the participants in the
Country Heart Attack Prevention (CHAP) Project.

The 2021/22 Program

The 2021 and 2022 CHAP Continuing Professional Development Program has been confirmed! We've lined up an exciting array of guest speakers who'll be presenting across the year on a wide range of cardiovascular health topics. 

This year we've launched a new presentation format. In each 45 minute session will be hosted by Dr Stephanie Champion, and will include 3 segments:

              •      A presentation from an invited guest speaker to talk about a heart health topic

              •      A brief report from our service-of-the-month (over 2021 and 2022 we will hear from each of the cardiac rehabilitation services across rural and remote South Australia and from some key metropolitan services

              •      A pharmacy update from the CHAP pharmacist, Dr Lemlem Gebremichael who will introduce and describe a new drug each month
