Stent-Save a Life! Project Managers seize the opportunity of EuroPCR to get together and brainstorm

Being the world-leading course in Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine, EuroPCR is attended by over 10,000 delegates from all over the world and is logically the opportunity for Stent-Save a Life! Project Managers travelling to Paris to meet up and exchange on each other’s progress, learn of best practice and resolve challenges.

On the day following this year’s Stent-Save a Life! Forum, 10 Stent-Save a Life! Project Managers from Asia, Europe, Latin America and Middle-East gathered to address and brainstorm on specific topics of interest with the objective to share success stories and help with unsolved challenges.

SSAL Project Manager Meeting at EuroPCR 2019Following an introductory presentation from the newly joined SSL member Japan, the group reflected with the Egyptian Project Manager on how to successfully approach industry decision-makers to discuss sponsorship and collaboration. Another topic for discussion, overcoming challenges with data collection for registry, was tackled from both the angle of the Egyptian success story and the one of the unsolved challenge in China.

During the second half of the day, Portugal and Argentina shared their positive experience on how focusing on education at all levels is crucial to make things happen. Hong-Kong’s presentation on the key challenges overcome in the city since the launch of the national pPCI programme – as well as the ones still ahead – was a good introduction for the group to then brainstorm on how to standardise patient management along the referral pathway under the facilitation of the South Africa Project Manager.

The day was concluded by the Russian Project Manager who shared a pioneering and successful experience in her country – the urgent care of ischemic stroke with percutaneous intervention – thus broadening the horizon of the percutaneous interventional approach.
