Keys to Optimizing a TAVR Program: The Patient and Provider Perspective
ACC Interventional Council's Structural Heart Disease Work Group presents lessons learned from established programs with the unique perspectives of both patients and providers in an effort to optimize TAVR programs.
Goals: To examine the perspectives of both patients and providers in an effort to optimize TAVR programs via pointed, high-level discussions investigating various "stops" along the care continuum.
Format: There will be four areas of the care continuum to discuss (the Work Up, the Procedure, the Post-TAVR Period and the Follow-Up). Each section will include 6 minute focused presentations from multidisciplinary Heart Team members that will highlight five key takeaways/pearls/lessons learned. The patient will then speak for 6 minutes to the five pearls and lend their unique voice and perspective to support the speaker’s thoughts.
Target Audience: Multidisciplinary - Physicians, fellows, advanced practice providers, nurses, and students.
- To provide high-level pearls of optimization along the care continuum to both new and established TAVR programs.
- To incorporate the patient voice and perspective to encourage patient-centric, team-based care.
- To provide an opportunity for questions and dialogue with the patient emphasizing their experience.
