At the 1993 Annual Academy Meeting the membership elected to establish a Speaker’s Bureau made up of volunteers from the Fellow members to serve the perfusion education programs. This service is available to all accredited schools of perfusion (CAAHEP and AC-PE approved) at no charge.
The Academy Members volunteer their time, energy, and expertise, and The Academy pays up to $500 toward expenses involved for travel, lodging, etc. This program is intended to broaden the resources available to perfusion schools and provide an increase in the expertise and experience available for the education of perfusion students.
A few of the suggested topics available are:
HEMOSTASIS and CPB – CPS – CARDIOPLEGIA – HISTORY of PERFUSION – PEDIATRIC PERFUSION – ECMO – LUNG TRANSPLANTATION – EDUCATION – FILTRATION – MEDICAL ETHICS – COMPUTERS – LV ASSIST and DEVICES – LIVER TRANSPLANT – RISK MANAGEMENT – PROFESSIONALISM – COMMUNICATION – LEGAL ISSUES – NORMOTHERMIC CPB – MONITORING
These are only suggested topics. If you have a specific topic in mind, we will find an Academy Member with the expertise and experience to address the subject.
