2018 September

The September learning session was a day and a half meeting in which providers, researchers, and parents met to learn from each other and collaborate.  There were multiple group-work sessions to identify and plan for quality improvement projects, especially in the key areas of stroke reduction for pediatric VAD patients, discharge and outpatient care, harmonization of best practice protocols, VAD program utilization and value, patient reported outcomes and the patient and family experience, etc.  Participating centers also received database training for the upcoming launch of the ACTION clinical database.
