Journal Watch

Journal watch. latest news from medical journals The WUPCHS Journal Watch aims to provide subscribers with pertinent literature in the field of congenital heart disease. Contributions are provided by leading international experts in selecting recently published articles, in peer reviewed journals, focusing on science and clinical practice of congenital heart disease.

Surveys

Important surveys Our current survey focuses on the impact the pandemic has had to the longer term health of our congenital heart programs as well as to gauge the success and failures of the particular strategies that were employed during the initial wave of the virus. We believe that obtaining this information from centers, which are on different points along the curve of the advancing infection, will provide greater insights on what to expect as additional waves of  the infection evolves.  Ongoing surveys are created to ensure we are in touch with your needs.

News
