The Structural Heart Program officially launched at the RDAQ 2022 Conference in Gladstone on June 10th.
GPs working in rural and remote communities are invited to participate in the education series covering the latest innovations in structural heart treatments.
Through a series of four sessions (accessed either in-person or via webinar), our Structural and Interventional Cardiologists will discuss new therapies which are now becoming commonplace. These therapies include:
- TAVI (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation) for treatment of aortic stenosis
- MitraClip for the treatment of mitral regurgitation
- LAA Occlusion (Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion) for stroke prevention
Through the course of these four sessions, participants will learn:
- What is the evidence?
- What does the procedure involve?
- How to choose the right patient
- Follow up for patients returning home
The first session in the series, “Advances in Structural Heart Disease” was presented by Dr Nicholas Aroney, MBBS, BSc, FRACP. The recording of this session will be available for viewing soon.
If you would like to register for the Structural Heart Program and gain access to the sessions please follow the below link to complete a short, six question survey which will be used to determine knowledge of these specific therapies prior to engaging in the session.
