4CCardiology Summit themes

On behalf of the Organising Committee for the 4 Corners of Cardiology 2020 Summit, we are pleased to announce the 4CC 2020 Summit, in conjunction with Future Proof – The Online Medical Education Summit.

The Summit will focus on mental health and impacts of COVID-19 on the cardiology industry and will touch on the traditional 4CC topics of Risk factors and prevention, Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), Arrhythmias and Heart Failure. COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on the cardiology industry, not only on the mental wellbeing of patients and doctors alike, but also directly to those suffering from heart disease, both immediate and long-term. That paired with the fact that elective surgeries, outpatient appointments and cardiac imaging have largely been cancelled during the pandemic, the cardiology industry has felt the impacts greatly.

Executive Sponsor of the 4CCardiology Summit

Feedback and Assessment
Curriculum (re) Design
Safety and Quality
Simulation and Virtual
Educator Development
Promoting Diversity

We recognise that medical education is very much a community of practitioners from various medical specialties where improving feedback and assessment of trainees will be instrumental in their development and growth.

Making sure the learning curriculum (program) is (re) designed in a contemporary and cutting edge will enable doctors, who sometimes work within complex teams, with the necessary tools to improve patient outcomes, with safety and quality being paramount. Interprofessionalism has often proven to drive results and positive outcomes for these complex team.

Medical educators need to have access to resources that encourages educator development in a safe and lively space where innovation is encouraged, trialled and tested. Simulations and virtual environment in the context of medical training can achieve enhanced performance outcomes.

Finally, we are ourselves a diverse community and recognise the value of including all perspectives, including ensuring that medical training reflects the population it serves.
