The ACTION network has officially rolled out the first quality improvement intervention bundle; The ABC’s of Reducing Stroke.  This is an exciting time for the network as interventions for change are tested to improve the care of our pediatric heart failure & VAD patients.  Twenty-five centers have volunteered to participate in this bundle.  The interventions being tested include the use of a Bivalirudin Protocol, an ideas sheet for drawing uncontaminated Bivalirudin blood draws, a standardized Blood Pressure measurement tool, and a Rounding Checklist to improve communication amongst providers, patients, and families.
