CHSPR Seminar | Results from the Coronary Revascularization and Timing of Treatment Study

Sean Hardiman, UBC School of Population and Public Health

12-1 pm PT
Register to attend in-person in SPPH or virtually (via Zoom). Sean Hardiman will present virtually.

Patients with stable ischemic heart disease requiring revascularization can undergo coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery or have percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a minimally invasive procedure. Research shows benefits of CABG over PCI in this population, but does not account for delays in CABG timing, a not infrequent occurrence given budgeted health system capacity and the recent COVID-19 pandemic. I will present the results from the Coronary Revascularization and Timing of Treatment study which compares patient health outcomes for those who receive delayed CABG compared to those who receive timely PCI.

Sean Hardiman is a PhD candidate at the UBC School of Population and Public Health in the Division of Health Services and Policy. He is also a Research Trainee at Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute’s Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation. Professionally, Sean is the Executive Director, Medication Systems and Medical Informatics at Island Health and was previously the Provincial Clinical Director for Coronary Revascularization, Structural Heart, and Advanced Heart Failure at Cardiac Services BC. Sean is supervised by Professor Boris Sobolev; his supervisory committee members include Professor Michael Law, Dr. Guy Fradet, and Dr. Simon Robinson.
