Start the activity on Guidelines Learning

This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on acute coronary syndrome (ACS)—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.

The questions, written by Dr Alan Begg, relate to his expert article, SIGN updates guidance on diagnosis and management of ACS, which summarises SIGN recommendations for the immediate assessment, management, and discharge arrangements for people with acute coronary syndrome. 

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • explain the assessment, diagnosis, and need for prompt transfer of patients to an appropriate centre
  • describe the management of ACS in the first 12 hours and up to and beyond hospital discharge
  • discuss therapeutic and pharmacological interventions for ACS.
