We celebrated our learning network’s 2nd Birthday in June 2019! As we look back at the last 2 years, we have so much to be thankful for; improved patient outcomes, harmonized protocols and standard processes, education materials, data for outcomes and quality improvement, and partnerships across the field with ALL stakeholders. We are looking forward to this exciting year ahead!
We also had a successful network update meeting at the ASAIO 65th Annual Conference in San Francisco, CA. Clinicians and other stakeholders attended the meeting to hear about new committees, new and active projects, and to celebrate our accomplishments!
ACTION created a new Heart Failure committee focused specifically on improving outcomes for pediatric and congenital heart disease patients with heart failure. Work within this committee is currently undergoing a quality improvement design process. An initial project will focus on developing a standard definition of “heart failure.”
