OVERVIEW OF ZOOM WEBINAR - 20 MAY 2022

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Spring Webinar held by the Society of Clinical Perfusion Scientists of GB&I. This year we will be focusing our program on educational skills and learning from our community by discussing the shared experiences of being a perfusionist.

The morning program will feature experts in clinical education and mentoring, to advance the experience of teaching and mentoring students for qualified perfusionists as well as improve the experience of trainees.

The afternoon session is centred around the sharing of ideas and experiences within perfusion. "Do all perfusionists think the same?" - a live, interactive discussion forum of perfusionists asked the same question and see how their answers fall on the spectrum. This will provide a space for honest conversation, show our difference and similarities and open doors for a talk on larger scale.

Following this will be interesting talks on clinical debriefing and the medicolegal side of perfusion designed to inform on and highlight other aspects of the perfusion experience.Join us for the day learning - from the experts and from each other.

2020 SCPS AGM

We are living in unprecedented times, which inevitably lead to unprecedented circumstances and difficult decisions. It is with great regret that I have to announce that this year’s Annual Congress of The Society of Clinical Perfusion Scientists will not be taking place in physical form. The decision has been taken by the executive committee after full discussion and careful consideration. We have a duty of care not only to you, our colleagues, but also to our patients. We feel that we cannot risk the possibility of causing an outbreak of Covid-19 within our professional group as this would not only endanger the health and welfare of us, but also potentially affect the capacity for cardiac surgery across Great Britain and Ireland.

We have moved the meeting online and are happy to invite you to our 2020 Webinar and AGM. We look forward to (virtually) seeing as many of you as possible over the 6th and 7th of November to enjoy a full academic programme and the Annual General Meetings of our Society and College.

Please follow the links to find out more and to register.

The call for abstracts has gone out and you can submit yours via the link shown below.

Thank you and ‘see’ you in November.
