Valvular heart disease is increasingly common due to an ageing population. There are newer, less invasive, treatments available meaning that intervention may be appropriate for patients who would not have been surgical candidates in the past. This module aims to equip primary care clinicians with the knowledge and skills to detect and refer patients with valvular heart disease.

An educational grant was received from Edwards Lifesciences  for the production of the course.  Editorial and content decisions were made solely by the RCGP.
