  1. 1. February 10 – 14, 2010 Disney’s Contemporary Resort Lake Buena Vista, Fla. ©Disney l 010 ©Disney 13th Annual Update on Pediatric Cardiovascular Disease Bringing Interdisciplinary Evidence-based Practice to the Patient ©Disney ©Disney A comprehensive post-graduate course for pediatric cardiologists, neonatologists, surgeons, nurses, intensivists, anesthesiologists, sonographers, perfusionists and all those involved in the care of neonates and children with cardiovascular disease.
  2. 2. l 010
  3. 3. Cardiology 2010 On behalf of the organizing committee and the Cardiac Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, we are pleased to present the program for our annual post-graduate course designed for physicians, nurses, perfusionists, administrators, clinical pharmacists, sonographers, respiratory therapists and all others involved in the care of neonates, infants, children and young adults with cardiovascular disease. Based upon positive feedback we received following Cardiology 2009 in Nassau last year, we have modified the course format to allow attendees more free time without a strict meeting agenda. In addition, in response to the realities of the current economic climate, we have reduced the cost of the meeting for all attendees (registration fee and hotel), while still providing more than 28 contact hours including hot topics, basic reviews, subspecialty breakouts and much more! Each year, the course faculty, topics and format are chosen following a careful assessment of prior attendees’ comments and reviews. We also invite young investigators from around the globe to present new science and ideas. The course faculty will present more than 300 talks in plenary sessions as well as small group and subspecialty breakout sessions, covering all areas necessary for comprehensive care of our patients and their families. Course Highlights • Updates and late-breaking results from the Pediatric Heart Network and scientific statements from professional societies • Comprehensive plenary sessions on aortic valve disease, pulmonary hypertension, the right ventricle and neurodevelopmental outcomes in CHD • Discipline-specific breakouts in outpatient cardiology, subspecialty updates, cardiovascular nursing and pediatric perfusion • Presentation of cutting-edge research, including basic science, clinical trials and innovative therapies • A comprehensive review of mechanical circulatory support Course Objectives Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to: • Describe the pathology, natural history, and results of surgical and catheter-based therapy for aortic valve disease in infants, children and young adults • Understand levels of evidence, strengths and limitations of scientific statements and position papers in pediatric cardiovascular disease • Review the current status of international research initiatives, including late-breaking results from the Pediatric Heart Network of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute • Recognize the child with CHD at risk for neurodevelopmental and behavioral problems Call for Abstracts Timeline Abstract Submission Deadline: Oct. 19, 2009 Poster Presentations: Feb. 11 – 13, 2010 Notification of Acceptance: Oct. 30, 2009 Award Presentations: Feb. 13, 2010 Oral Presentations: Feb. 11 – 12, 2010 Course participants are encouraged to submit abstracts for consideration for the Annual Outstanding Investigator and Nursing Scientist Awards. The top six accepted abstracts will be presented as oral presentations — the remaining will be presented in one of three poster sessions. The international course faculty will select the recipients of the Seventh Annual Outstanding Investigator Award and the Third Annual Nursing Scientist Awards. The winners will receive an award at the featured plenary session on Feb. 13, 2010, a complimentary registration for Cardiology 2011 and a $500 travel grant. Abstracts will be accepted in all aspects of cardiovascular care, including cardiac issues in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, cardiovascular nursing, inpatient and outpatient cardiology, surgical, anesthesia and perfusion research, as well as basic cardiovascular science. Electronic submission only: see for details. Abstract acceptance does not include course registration fee or hotel accommodations. 11

  5. 5. Special Interest Sessions To help you easily identify relevant speaker topics and breakout sessions, all presentations are color-coded according to discipline. Use this guide to quickly find your way around. PLENARY Plenary Sessions Plenary sessions are designed to meet the needs of all those who care for neonates, children and young adults with cardiovascular disease. Sessions are broad in scope and presented by a multidisciplinary faculty. SURG/PERF Updates on Congenital Heart Surgery and Pediatric Perfusion These sessions will focus on state-of-the-art surgical therapy and perioperative support for the neonate, infant and child with congenital heart disease. Surgeons, anesthesiologists and perfusionists will discuss controversies in management and new modes of treatment. Special Topics in Cardiovascular Nursing NURSING A course-long track, including a special preconference on the principles of perioperative care, will highlight contemporary issues facing nurses caring for neonates, infants, children and young adults with heart disease. Sessions will encompass all aspects of pediatric cardiovascular nursing, from the bedside through long-term follow-up. Special sessions will focus on advanced practice nursing, nursing research and nursing administration. Ambulatory and General Pediatric Cardiology PED. CARD Throughout the meeting, breakout sessions will focus on important issues for outpatients with heart disease and the practitioners who care for them. Featured sessions will include acquired heart disease in children, legal and ethical issues, long-term outcomes, electrophysiology and pulmonary hypertension. Cardiac Intensive Care An international, multidisciplinary faculty has been assembled to review current management, controversies in care and new research in cardiac intensive care and cardiac anesthesia. Featured breakout sessions will supplement the plenary I.C.U. sessions on late-breaking clinical trials, and will include mechanical support of the failing circulation, new methods of invasive and non-invasive monitoring, new technology and infection control. PCICS members are entitled to a $50 discount. EARLY TRACK Special Track for Residents, Fellows and Junior Faculty, Including a Pre- and Post-conference Seminar Expanding a very popular feature in previous years, a special track is planned for trainees and junior faculty early in their careers to provide guidance on career choices, financial security, work-life balance and other practical guidelines for long-term success in cardiovascular medicine. Cardiology 2010 provides an excellent opportunity to network and interact with practitioners in training or early in their careers. Administrative Topics in Cardiovascular Disease ADMIN. Increasingly complex guidelines, hospital requirements and government mandates have changed the landscape of providing care for children with heart disease. Throughout the conference, hospital administrators and nursing and physician leaders will discuss challenges and solutions to these complex problems. 3
