The assigned learning objectives for this roundtable are listed for your information:

  • To discuss challenges with staffing in the modern cath lab
  • To consider best practice with ‘on-call’ strategy
  • To debate education, training and certification strategy amongst cath lab staff
  • To summarise future direction and developments within the BCIS AHP working group

This educational activity is intended for an international audience, specifically cath lab staff such as nurses, physiologists and radiologists but will be of interest to other healthcare professionals involved in interventional cardiology.
