Quality Care in the Era of Certification and Accreditation - Los Angeles, California

Date: 2017-02-10

There are now an estimated 1.5 million adults living with congenital heart disease in the United States. In order to meet the growing demand for adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) specialty care, a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive approach to program development and patient care is needed. This course highlights the components of a multidisciplinary ACHD comprehensive care center, and provides an overview of complex clinical scenarios which outlines how specialty ACHD care is provided in the U.S. based on practice guidelines and accreditation standards.

The course seeks to teach attendees about subspecialty practice standards for ACHD care to meet the life-long needs of this rapidly growing patient population. Over the past decade, the U.S. has witnessed expanding numbers of cardiology “ACHD” providers stepping up in an effort to shore up the deficits in ACHD specialty care. However, these providers vary widely with a broad spectrum of educational preparation and institutional preparation, which ultimately may impact the quality of care for ACHD patients.

This course is targeted toward Cardiologists, Pediatric Cardiologists, Internal Medicine Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Fellows, Medicine and Pediatric Residents.
