Heart to Heart Program

Perth Cardio Education Programs

Perth Cardiovascular Institute is committed to supporting GP’s in providing outstanding patient care with an ethical, thoughtful and sustainable approach at all time. Our approach is centred in building relationships with our referring doctors.

As part of this approach to excellence in health outcomes, we are delighted to present our 2017 “Heart to Heart” educational dinner meeting series. These sessions are focused on interactive, practical and case based presentations of core concepts in Cardiology.

To further develop good working relationships with our referrers, our Cardiologists also regularly visit individual practices to provide updates and answer any questions. We are delighted to arrange meetings at a time to suit you with topics that support your practice and patient care.

If you would like to attend our next educational evening or have one of our Cardiologists attend your practice, please email us at education@perthcardio.com.au
