Pioneering webinars for people living with heart failure. Moderated and safe.

Our patient educators put their heads together to devise a programme of events to keep heart failure patients, carers and families going during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic whilst socially isolating. They created our series of pioneering webinars where everybody could join in.

The program was devised by people living with heart failure, appealing to all. The events across the week were run by patients and or experts in their field. All the experts were DBS checked and certificated in their respective fields. The patient educators were the hosts and moderators and, were volunteers of the Pumping Marvellous Foundation.

We decided to continue. Since we started “live streaming” our webinars across our channels in April 2020 they have been viewed over 120,000 times up until the end of July 2020 and have become a regular part of our social media educational programme.
