Cardiovascular Professionals Week 2020 has come and gone, but one week isn't nearly enough time to celebrate all that cardiovascular professionals do for their teams, organizations, and patients throughout the year. Outstanding cardiovascular teams save lives, provide excellent care, and advance the field of cardiology year-round.
Of course, the Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals exists year-round to highlight these outstanding cardiovascular teams! We've decided to extend the spirit of CVP Week and put faces and names to the wide community of cardiovascular professionals that make a difference, every day. Through our blog, we'll be highlighting different individuals and teams each month, sharing stories, insights and unique perspectives that make cardiovascular care such a diverse, effective and growing field.
Through these monthly features, ACVP will also be highlighting one of the essential benefits a professional association provides: the opportunity for peers to connect with, and learn from, one another and their experiences.
We know that informal “hallway conversations” are often as productive and enlightening as formal educational sessions, if not more so—and collaboration and discussion can promote outstanding cardiovascular teams. Here, we seek to recreate that experience – social learning – through informal and focused personal narratives from professionals across the spectrum of cardiovascular care.
Our discussions may touch on:
- Organizational team-building practices
- Quality initiatives
- Personal successes, current projects, and lessons learned
- What excites you about cardiovascular work
- Ways your team has overcome common challenges
- Great continuing education
- Adapting to new technology and techniques
- Effective mentorship
Ultimately, the focus is YOU and the incredibly important work you do every day.
We would love you hear from you about any of the above and give you a chance to be featured! Maybe you have a story that you think would provide some insight for your professional peers—or maybe you'd like to brag on how awesome your teammates are and why it feels great going in to work every day.
Whatever the case, let us know! We'd love to highlight you.
