Need help understanding how to apply the recently released 2012 Clinical Expert Consensus Document on Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Standards Update* to your cath lab? 

Join us for the first update to this document since 2001 and it is critical that all members of the cath lab team understand how this document will affect commonly accepted quality standards and best practices. As SCAI Quality Champions continue to implement the SCAIQIT at their cardiac cath lab, this webinar will also provide participants with a focused look at how this document applies to quality oversight of the lab and how it can be incorporated into the greater Toolkit.
