We are very excited to bring you our new series on Landmark Papers in Vascular Surgery!
We are proud to start off with the IMPROVE trial, and for that we welcome Professor Janet Powell, Professor of Vascular Biology & Medicine at Imperial College, London and Chief Investigator of the IMPROVE Trial.
In this episode, Imani and Reginald discuss with Dr. Backhus and Dr. Goodney the historical implications of the longstanding poor relationship between the Black community and the medical community, and its effect on current practices and patient care in vascular surgery. They also explore the role of research in creating demonstrable changes in practice to aid in ameliorating this relationship.
We are excited to share our discussion with Dr. Carmen Johnson and Dr. Ronald Fairman from the Food and Drug Administration on the approval processes and the post-market surveillance of medical devices.
Adam, Robin, and Dr. Forbes sit down with Drs Lawrence, Nelson, and Eldrup-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.
