Adam, Robin, and Dr. Forbes sit down with Drs Lawrence, Nelson, and Eldrep-Jorgensen to discuss the Society for Vascular Surgery Foundation and introduce one of its newest initiatives, the VISTA program.
We host a panel of vascular surgeons representing the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Policy and Advocacy Council, Government Relations Committee (GRC), and the Political Action Committee. (PAC). They discuss how they became involved and specifically their work regarding the United States Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Payment Reforms that will go into effect in January 2021.
In this second episode from our series on race and representation in medicine, we focus on the challenges of recruitment and retention of racial and ethnic minority groups that are underrepresented in medicine (URM) to vascular surgery. We are very pleased to have with us a number of guests at different levels of training to discuss their experiences and insights.
In light of the events unfolding across the country over the past few weeks, The Society for Vascular Surgery's Diversity Equity and Inclusion Task Force and the Wellness Task Force sponsored a webinar around race in America and its impact on our field. We at Audible Bleeding thought this was an excellent start, and we would hope to keep the conversation going.
Kevin and Adam interview four cutting edge outcomes researchers in vascular surgery, leading two international studies on the impact of COVID-19 on vascular surgery patients, the COVER Study and VASCC.
As part of our ongoing series of COVID-19 related episodes, we interview several New York City vascular surgeons to see what lessons can be gleaned from their experiences during the first few weeks of the pandemic. We discuss such topics as call coverage, redeployment, setting up a line service, and protecting ourselves from infection while caring for the COVID-19 patient.
Dr. Jim Littlejohn is an anesthesiologist and critical care physician practicing at Weill Cornell Medicine. He joins us today to provide a brief primer on ICU management of COVID positive patients for redeployed physicians.
