Steps to access the online Million Hearts® educational module
- Instruct the student to go to http://go.osu.edu/millionhearts
- Select Million Hearts Fellow from the course list
- If the student is a new user, he/she will need to select create new account, or the student can login with their existing account if he/she is a returning user.
- The website has four easy steps. The student will first watch five online lectures. The lecture content includes: an overview of Million Hearts®, how to do an accurate biometric assessment, interpretation of normal and abnormal biometric and lab values, a sample triage protocol, and how to effectively counsel on lifestyle modifications.
- Step two requires the student to go out into the community and complete 10 Million Hearts® screenings. There are several downloadable resources on the module to assist in this process. Patient educational handouts, a screening pocket guide, a clinical recording log, a body mass index chart, a framingham risk score chart for males and females, and a Perceived Stress Scale 4 can be downloaded and printed for screenings
- Upon completion of the 10 screenings, the student will complete step three and enter the participant data into the Million Heart® website
- Once all participant data has been entered, the student will complete step four, a 10 item post-test.
- Following completion of the test, the student will be certified as a Million Hearts Fellow and can print off their certificate.
