The course provides an update on how to read ECGs –the basics and beyond– with a focus on ECG abnormalities that are highly relevant to the practice of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.

- Abnormal ECGs – clinical symptoms to look for, and key clinical questions to ask the patient
- ECG abnormalities related to psychiatric medication
- Abnormal ECG – expected outcomes and management, including medication management
- What ECG is contraindication to psychotropic medication?
- When to refer further to a specialist
