Testimonials |

“The NPC-QIC network is over 60 centers collecting data and accumulating knowledge about one of the most challenging problems we face, infants with HLHS. This network involves surgeons, cardiologists, nurses, dieticians, and families working together and taking a comprehensive approach to tackling the problems of infants with HLHS.  NPC-QIC is giving these centers the opportunity to learn from each other, share experiences, and use improvement science to make real-time changes”.

“Each time I’ve attended one of the Learning Labs or webinars, I have left with a heightened sensitivity to another area of focus that will enhance the care of not just our HLHS patients, but all our heart center’s patients and their families”.

“The NPC-QIC network has had a tremendous impact on interstage survival for infants with HLHS.  NPC-QIC provides a structure to discuss the challenges we all face, exchange ideas and opportunities for improvement, and learn from each other.  This network is important for pediatric cardiology and pediatric cardiac surgery.”
