Cardiac Tissue Recovery
This session provides an overview of the cardiac tissue recovery process.
Joanna Grubman, BA, CTBS
Donor Services Account Manager
Jo Grubman has been working in tissue recovery since 2014, initially operating as a Tissue Surgical Recovery Coordinator and Team Leader at New England Donor Services, and later as National Trainer for LeMaitre Vascular. She is currently the National Trainer/Donor Services Account Manager for LeMaitre Vascular.
She received her bachelor’s degree in English Language/Communications from University of Rochester, and has a background as a paramedic in Boston and the surrounding area. Her training focuses heavily on hands-on, in-person instruction, which she believes to be the most effective tool in helping those in tissue recovery learn and grow, with a secondary emphasis on creating videos, presentations, and other materials that aim to supplement hands-on case training. She also believes that trainer presence in the operating room/recovery suite setting is essential in connecting with staff and the donation community.
Her ultimate goal as a trainer in the field of donation is to support field staff in any way possible, including assisting and training in a physical sense, but also answering questions and discussing the stresses of working in the donation field in an attempt to prevent burnout.
