Seeking ACHD Care When There is No Local Center

Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - Presented by Jeremy Nicolarsen, MD, FACC, Susan Fernandes, LP.D, PA-C, and Tarrin Weber

Scheduled Wednesday, Aug 18, 2021 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. EDT

Living with congenital heart disease can be difficult. It can even be harder if you don’t live near an Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Accredited Program or board certified ACHD specialist. What can an ACHD patient in these areas do to get specialized care? When is traveling for care necessary? How can you form a care partnership with your local team and a remote ACHD provider? Join Jeremy Nicolarsen, MD, FACC, Sue Fernandes, LP.D., PA-C, and Tarrin Weber, an ACHD patient without a local team, as they discuss these challenges and more. You’ll also learn about the role of virtual office visits, best practices for seamless communication, and the importance of self-advocacy.
