Allied Health Professionals Working Group

The BCIS AHP Working Group was initiated in 2012 with the goal of providing high quality, focused education for nurses, radiographers and physiologists working in interventional cardiac catheter labs around the country. The aim of the group remains to provide AHPs with the necessary tools for them to continue to develop their practice, and improve the service offered to our patients, by learning from each other. To achieve this, we hold a yearly summer conference (face to face and online) specifically for AHPs, where staff of all levels come together to learn new skills, share techniques and discuss the latest developments in interventional cardiology. In addition, the working group actively participate in the yearly ACI conference, providing an AHP viewpoint and delivering specific AHP sessions for BCIS members.
