In 2007 the inaugural The New Orleans Conference: Practices in Cardiac Surgery and Extracorporeal Technologies was held. The conference was organized to address the need for quality continuing medical education for perfusionists, surgeons, and the entire heart care team. The goals of the conference directors were to develop a learning environment whereby timely and relevant information would be available to practitioners in all practice settings and to become the premier heart care team CME conference. Forty-three heart care professionals from around the world attended the inaugural event in post-Katrina New Orleans.
The New Orleans Conference: Practices in Cardiac Surgery and Extracorporeal Technologies is dedicated to the guiding principle of optimal patient care. Through its mission of outstanding and specialized clinical education, the Conference strives to provide all components of the cardiovascular and thoracic surgical care team to enable successful clinical outcomes with data-driven and evidence-based quality. By embracing new technology and its application in an ever-changing healthcare environment while acknowledging the valuable experiences of our specialty’s pioneers, the Conference positions itself to be the premier educational vehicle for the heart care team.
