Fontan Education Day - Melbourne 2019

Heart disease is the leading cause of child death in Australia, accounting for one in three childhood deaths. While some patients require only minor surgical procedures, others require major operations, such as the Fontan procedure, to improve their health.

The 6th Annual Education Day will be held in Melbourne at the Royal Children’s Hospital, on Saturday 14th September. This forum will provide a very unique opportunity to hear from specialists in paediatric cardiology and congenital heart disease. Like previous years, this is set to be an informative meeting for patients, families and carers, doctors, researchers and allied health workers alike. It builds on the good works of the Fontan Registry.

This initiative is the world’s largest database of Fontan patients, and it involves specialists and researchers working closely together to ensure patients and their families will benefit from the highest standard of evidence-based care and treatment.

The Fontan Education Day will provide the opportunity for patients and their families to hear from experts in the field, and importantly, will also share patient insights and lived experience.

Parental guidance is advised as some of the topics discussed will contain sensitive information. Please note that we will be filming the presentations and taking photographs to showcase the event.
