What is the SCTS CT Forum?
The SCTS CT Forum is aimed at nurses, allied healthcare professionals and all indivividuals with an interest in cardiothoracic surgery. It takes place as part of the SCTS Annual Meeting once a year and includes a 3 day educational experience including an interactive wet lab day at the SCTS university. Speakers are often invited from around the world. We give all Cardiothoracic Forum participants the opportunity to network with nurses and allied health practitioners from all aspects of cardiothoracic care, including those working in theatres and on cardiothoracic intensive care and high dependency units.
The next SCTS CT Forum will take place at the SCTS Annual Meeting 2021 at virtually Sunday 7th – 9th February 2021
