The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust is excited to be a part of the upcoming Yorkshire and Humber Cardiac Clinical Networks virtual event on Thursday, May 18th, 2023, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. This event is an excellent opportunity for us to collaborate with other organisations and healthcare professionals to share knowledge, learn about the latest advancements, and raise awareness about acute aortic dissection and its impact on patients and their families.
The virtual event will cover a range of topics, including heart failure, acute aortic dissection, cardiac rehabilitation digital solutions, and patient and public involvement (PPI). We are honoured to be presenting alongside esteemed speakers Nick Hartshorne-Evans and Kate Hornby from the Pumping Marvellous Heart Failure Charity, and Laura Selke, Clinical Lead Physiotherapist and Cardiac Rehab Network Delivery Lead for Humber and North Yorkshire.
Our representatives, Catherine Fowler and Graham Cooper, will be sharing insights and updates on the continued work of The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust regionally in Yorkshire and nationally. They will discuss our efforts to raise awareness, support patients and their families, and advocate for better diagnosis and treatment options for those affected by aortic dissection. Additionally, they will provide an overview of our educational resources, such as our healthcare professional resources, Living with Aortic Dissection course, Field Guide for Primary Care course, and Aortic Dissection Field Guide for Primary Care. They will also touch upon our research funding initiatives and the Aortic Dissection Awareness Day that we organise annually to increase visibility of this life-threatening condition.
The virtual event is open to a wide range of colleagues with an interest in cardiac care, including primary care networks, Integrated Care Board (ICB) commissioning colleagues and Place Leads, community teams, acute provider teams, voluntary and third-sector organisations, and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID). We believe that bringing together such a diverse group of stakeholders will foster a rich exchange of ideas and promote a collaborative approach to addressing the challenges faced by those living with cardiac conditions, including aortic dissection.
As an organisation, TADCT is committed to creating a positive impact on the lives of patients and families affected by aortic dissection.
