This live course is dedicated to educating front line cardiac caregivers on up to date diagnosis and management of ACHD. This year's course includes focused sessions on disease management, supplemented with hands on interaction and discussions regarding key modalities such as; ultrasound, catheter-based intervention, mechanical device support, exercise testing/ prescription, and advanced drug therapies.
