A quality improvement project was developed using a pre-test, education intervention, post-test design to assess nurse’s ability identify STEMI ECGs from non-STEMI ECGs and to assess the impact of a brief educational program on nurses’ performance. The pre-tests were available to nursing staff over a two-week period to obtain the nurses’ baseline knowledge. Following the pre-test period nurses were provided the educational sessions followed immediately by distribution of the post-test. The pre-tests were then compared to the post-tests to assess whether or not the education improved nurses’ performance in STEMI recognition.
