Get With The Guidelines-Resuscitation (GWTG) is the first program to require all data abstractors to pass a certification exam prior to using the Patient Management Tool™ and abstracting data. Several clinical and technical training opportunities are available below. GWTG has chosen to utilize American Heart Association’s Lifelong Learning website (link opens in new window)for the required testing. This certification is essential in order to ensure the capabilities in abstracting data responsibly using the Patient Management Tool provided by IQVIA through The American Heart Association by all clients.
