FONTAN EDUCATION DAY 2015 SUMMARY - SYDNEY


Our second annual Fontan Education Day was held on 18th October 2015 at Westmead Children's Hospital. This was a sold out event that was attended by 180 Fontan participants, their families, cardiac surgeons, cardiologists,   researchers, and allied health workers. This was a wonderful opportunity for families to connect.   Presentation topics included long-term care after the Fontan operation, research findings, break-out sessions around pregnancy, issues in school-aged kids, transition to adult care, neurodevelopment, and specialised workshops for young people. The day was well-received with plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions. Thank you to our wonderful Sydney team for their generosity in hosting the event and a stimulating program!
