Expanding the Educational Walls: Providing LVAD Education to Community Care Providers

Surgical implanted left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is an increasing treatment option for patients living with end stage heart failure. Due to the increasing number of LVAD’s implanted, the mechanical circulatory support team questioned the best method to provide quality education to staff members from community based facilities who have had limited experience caring for this particular patient population. The team developed a free quarterly educational event entitled “The LVAD Basics: What you need to know LVAD Care in Community Based Medical Settings.”
