AIMS The aim is to provide a standard educational structure for nurses and allied professionals (NAP) specialising in interventional cardiology. The curriculum can also be used as a basis for training on a certificate- based level in interventional cardiology. METHODS AND RESULTS The curriculum was developed by a panel of experts from various allied health professions. The syllabus focuses on nine core areas of themes essential for NAPs working in interventional cardiology. The highly technical knowledge required for working in interventional cardiology as well as the various roles of different professional groups have been taken into consideration. CONCLUSIONS This core curriculum will ensure that essential content is covered during education and a basic level of quality is achieved across specialty cardiovascular educational programs throughout Europe.
