Cardiac Staff Matters 25/03/14

Cardiac Staff Matters is a regular publication of updates, information, points to ponder, and things that are significant to the Program. The aim is to pass these points on during huddles, in conversations, and by posting in clinical areas to ensure widest dissemination.

1. Congratulations to Dr. Thang Nguyen on his appointment as Medical Advisor to both Cardiac Rehab programs at Wellness Institute and Reh-Fit Centre.

2. The outcomes from 21 cases from Complex Case Rounds are now entered and available in EPR. This represents great progress on this nationally significant initiative.

3. Prize winners!! Congratulations to Kathleen Hillstrom, Nicole Bonomo, and Steve Klassen for correctly answering the question from the last issue of Cardiac Staff Matters. Dr. Morley Cohen completed the first open heart surgery in Manitoba in 1959. I will arrange for a drop-off of your $20 Convenience Card for Café Oasis & Tim Hortons (at St B).

If you have any points that you want to pass to the rest of the Program and/or have feedback, please contact Paul Joudrey pjoudrey@sbgh.mb.ca or 204.237.2743
