from 9am - 1pm
A virtual education event

Course Overview

Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) presents a multifaceted landscape of challenges within healthcare systems, requiring a concerted effort to bridge existing gaps in diagnosis and management. From delayed recognition of symptoms to fragmented care pathways, our program is committed to addressing these gaps at the individual, team, and system levels to optimize patient outcomes and ensure holistic care delivery.

In alignment with our educational goals, this symposium serves as a cornerstone in our mission to enhance early recognition, promote interdisciplinary collaboration, standardize care practices, and address systemic barriers associated with TGA diagnosis and management. By engaging the interprofessional healthcare team in educational activities, we aim to foster a culture of continuous learning and improvement, ultimately revolutionizing the landscape of TGA care delivery.
