Requested Patronage:

Missions of TOBI

  • to amplify the ability to perform complex coronary procedures in bifurcation and CTO lesions
  • to teach & discuss during extensively shown live cases performed by forefront operators: the most modern approaches and technical innovation
  • to provide with concise lectures by world experts ‘on-the-point’ theoretical and practical knowledge

TOBI 2019 is compliant

with the new Code of Ethical Business practice for Companies that are members of MedTech Europe. As MedTech Europe announced, direct industry sponsorship cannot be supported yet “grants can only be provided to PCOs but never to individuals”. Symposia OC, a Professional Conference Organizer, is a “third-parties of trust” and will receive financial support from industries to select and invite Physicians on behalf of TOBI Course Directors in order to provide Interventional Cardiologists with a valuable training experience.

Italian Nurse & Technician Day

Il congresso TOBI 2019 si pone l’obiettivo di rispondere alle esigenze formative dei partecipanti che quotidianamente lavorano nei laboratori di cardiologia ed emodinamica pertanto anche l’assistenza infermieristica ha la necessità di evolversi.

Le sessioni, oltre che alla figura di infermiere professionale, sono aperte anche ai tecnici sanitari di radiologia medica e ai tecnici in fisiopatologia cardiocircolatoria e perfusione cardiovascolare e sono state concepite per essere estremamente interattive e coinvolgenti con i discenti in ogni momento didattico.

Le sessioni si pongono l’obiettivo di spiegare in modo preciso gli aspetti del nursing tecnico ad un pubblico che si prende cura di pazienti colpiti da lesioni coronariche complesse, in particolare modo biforcazioni e occlusioni croniche.
