COURSE OVERVIEW

Advancing the Field:

Forum on Practice Innovation, Scientific Achievement, and Career Advancement for Pediatric and Adult Congenital Electrophysiology

Overview:

The advancement of the field of pediatric and congenital electrophysiology depends on innovation, the re-evaluation of existing practices, and continual development of the careers of our colleagues including recent graduates of electrophysiology fellowship just beginning their practice, experienced electrophysiologists who are somewhat removed from their training, and allied health professionals who are essential to the success of an electrophysiology program . Personal and institutional biases gained in fellowship or training are often continued into practice with few opportunities for innovation, minimal re-evaluation, and limited forums to collaborate with colleagues using different approaches, technologies, and research. Given the current velocity of growth in our field, it is vital that pediatric and adult congenital electrophysiologist is exposed to different approaches, the latest technologies, and innovative ideas in patient care and research. 

Objectives:

  1. Discuss the different diagnostic and treatment approaches to pediatric and adult congenital electrophysiologic challenges.
  2. Identify the innovative technologies and their potential uses for pediatric and adult congenital patients.
  3. Employ collaborative strategies among pediatric and adult congenital electrophysiologists for the purpose of research, academia, and achievement.
  4. Formulate interactions among healthcare providers that foster mentorship from leaders in the pediatric and adult congenital electrophysiology community.
  5. Identify the advantages and limitations of electrophysiologic catheters, mapping systems, and implantable devices.
  6. Demonstrate the procedural techniques which are infrequently performed in general practice.
  7. Compare similar electrophysiologic technologies in a standard environment.
