Project Information

Accurate Assessment of QT Prolongation among Psychiatrists

Project Description: The goal of our QI project is to educate on accurate assessment of corrected QT intervals, as computer generated QT intervals may be inaccurate. We are hoping to address an over reliance on computer generated calculations of QT intervals. We plan on collaborating with the Cardiology Fellows in setting up an education module for faculties and residents. This will include a pre-test and a post- test to psychiatry faculty and residents involving de-identified EKG from publicly available online libraries. There will also be a 20-30 minute video lecture module presented by Cardiology fellows.
