Evaluation of the feedback forms

An evaluated paragraphed brief of the feedback forms filled out by the participants helps us understand about their point of view on the competencies and inadequacies of the workshop. According to the participants, the workshop was helpful in a way that it allowed them to learn about the basic diagnosis of cardiac ailments and it also provided them with an opportunity to revise what was learnt beforehand. It also enabled them to assimilate the concepts of valvular heart diseases and the basic rules followed to draft an ECG report. The participants were able to grasp the process of screening congenital heart diseases, valvular heart diseases and birth abnormalities. They are now successfully abled to make ECG interpretations as the entire topic was covered in an efficient manner.
