The American Society of Extracorporeal Technology (AmSECT) and the American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS) will hold their second collaborative learning event April 28 – May 1 in San Diego. The integrated conference brings surgeons and perfusionists together to learn shared mental models designed to improve teamwork, communication, and patient outcomes.
We’re proud to announce that SpecialtyCare’s Al Stammers, MSA, CCP, will be on hand to deliver two presentations during the event. On Saturday, April 28, Al will discuss “Strategies for the Delivery of Cardioplegia: Best Practices for Myocardial Preservation” as part of the AATS meeting. On Monday, April 30, Al and Michael Firstenburg, MD, will present “Leveraging Guidelines to Improve Care” as part of the AmSECT section on “Building a Foundation of a Great Cardiac Program.” Al’s expertise, coupled with quantitative findings from SCOPE, the SpecialtyCare Operative Procedural Registry®, offers a unique opportunity for attendees to enhance their knowledge and advance the quality of cardiac care. We encourage you to attend.
