The Quality Improvement track will be offered alongside educational tracks traditionally offered at SCAI's Scientific Sessions, including treatment of coronary, structural, peripheral and congenital heart disease. SCAI 2013 will feature case reviews, interactive workshops, late-breaking clinical trials and poster sessions, providing attendees with the latest advancements in technology and clinical techniques. Specialized programming will focus on interventional therapies for congenital and structural heart disease in children and adults, transradial interventions, chronic total occlusions, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), hemodynamics and imaging, as well as programming specifically geared toward early-career interventionalists.
"SCAI has long been a leader in quality improvement, so adding a dedicated quality track at our annual meeting was a natural extension of our efforts," said Dr. Marshall. "We look forward to continuing to grow and improve the program so it may serve as a valuable educational resource for advancing the quality and safety of clinical practice and for helping our members expand their roles as quality leaders for the entire profession."
