BCCA Annual Scientific Meeting 2019
Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th November 2019 
SAGE GATESHEAD, Newcastle Upon Tyne
On behalf of the BCCA we are delighted to invite you to join us at the BCCA Annual Scientific Meeting 2019 which is being held in the diverse and vibrant Newcastle Upon Tyne. Taking place over two days on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th November 2019 held at the SAGE GATESHEAD. This is a meeting for all professionals involved in the care of patients with congenital heart disease and features a pre-conference meeting on Mechanical Support in Congenital Heart Disease, breakout sessions for paediatricians with expertise in cardiology and national paediatric and adult congenital nurses meetings. We are currently organising our programme with the two main clinical topics we intend to cover being the Fontan circulation and the aorta. We also plan to look at topics such as clinical decision making behaviours, the future of clinical research and interpretation of risk. Our aim is to deliver the programme in the context of the patient lifecycle …..”from development to destination”.

Advances in Adult Congenital Heart Disease
September 20, 2019
New York, NY
Advancements and innovations in congenital heart disease (CHD) surgery and medicine have led to staggering survival and improvement in quality of life of adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). ACHD patients represent a highly complex, diverse, and challenging group of patients. Parallel to the success in care of ACHD patients, there is a growing demand to educate and train caregivers in ACHD management. This symposium is bringing lecturers who led the most current ACHD guideline committees together with top clinician innovators in the field of congenital cardiac surgery, structural heart disease, imaging and electrophysiology. This symposium will explore the new 2018 ACHD guidelines and their translation to clinical practice; breakthroughs in 3D printing of complex congenital heart disease and their implication on CHD surgical planning; updates and advances in CHD surgery; the newest innovations in transcutaneous valve technology, electrophysiological devices and imaging capture of CHD; advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension management for CHD; as well as pregnancy and reproductive assisted therapies for CHD.

10th Annual Phoenix Fetal Cardiology Symposium
November 7-11, 2019
Scottsdale Plaza Resort
The 10th Annual Phoenix Fetal Cardiology Symposium is a four-day conference that will discuss important concepts in congenital heart disease as well as the most recent advances in imaging, diagnosis and management of fetal cardiac abnormalities. Several lectures will focus on the emerging specialty of fetal therapeutic intervention and the related cardiac implications. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit and present scientific abstracts focused on fetal cardiac disease as well as challenging cases of fetal cardiac disease. Breakout workshops including 3-4D echo volume manipulation, hands-on scanning of cardiac and extra-cardiac lesions, and Doppler assessment techniques are planned. Three pre-conference tracks will be offered on Thursday, November 7, 2019. A newly created pre-conference track designed for sonographers will focus on prenatal cardiac echocardiographic screening of congenital heart defects. This course will primarily be an extended hands-on scanning learning session giving sonographers the opportunity to scan live patients alongside course faculty. A second pre-conference track on fetal and neonatal cardiac pathology has been redesigned to emphasize the echocardiographic correlation with pathologic specimens and give attendees the opportunity for supervised examination of the pathologic specimens. A final pre-conference track designed for fetal cardiology nurse coordinators will discuss patient education materials, meeting the psychosocial needs of the patient, and other topics allowing time for collaborative discussion. Lectures, procedure demonstrations and interactive case study formats will focus on expanding evidence-based care management strategies for clinical decision making. Speakers are nationally and internationally prominent experts, creating an authoritative learning venue for fetal cardiology and fetal cardiac imaging. This symposium has been designed for physicians including pediatric cardiologists, maternal fetal medicine specialists, obstetricians, neonatologists, radiologists, geneticists as well as sonographers, nurses, and other paramedical colleagues and trainees. This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson and Phoenix Children's Hospital. The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson designates this live activity for a maximum of 34 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. If you would like more information or experience issues when registering, please contact Nikki Hicks, Symposium Organizer, at fetalcardio@phoenixchildrens.com or (602) 933-0099.
