Needs Statement

There is a critical need for collaborative initiatives aimed at standardization of practice, quality improvement, research and innovation as they relate to the applications of Pediatric Paracorporeal and Extracorporeal Therapies (PPET). The PPET Summit 2023 will transform these critical gaps into knowledge and research opportunities by bringing together, for the first time, pediatric and adult experts from across the globe in the fields of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, ventricular assist device, renal replacement therapy, extracorporeal liver support, and apheresis. The summit will bring together local and international experts to define the current status of PPET, including the role of hybrid and tandem therapies; standardize current approaches; identify key knowledge gaps that need to be addressed to facilitate optimal patient care; and set a collaborative research and quality agenda to improve our understanding of PPET. This will provide a much-needed framework to optimize the care of these patients and improve their outcomes.

Target Audience

This activity is for Primary Care Physicians, Private Practice Physicians, Hospitalists, Advanced Practice Providers, Nurses, Respiratory Therapist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Pediatric Paracorporeal and Extracorporeal Specialists, Critical Care Specialists, ECMO Specialists, ECMO Primers, Fellows, Residents, and Medical Students affiliated with Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the conference, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the current state of extracorporeal therapies in resource limited setting and low middle income countries
  • Compare existing liver support systems and examine implementation gaps
  • Apply translational research concepts to novel clinical trial designs to understand development as a biologic variable
  • Identify knowledge gaps for current use of therapeutic apheresis in the intensive care units to inform a research agenda
  • Build consensus on core elements for quality science in extracorporeal therapies by catalyzing standardization of terminology
