The meeting is hosted by St George’s, University of London, principally by Professors Juan Carlos Kaski and John Camm of the university’s Molecular and Clinical Sciences Research Institute.

This year's scientific programme will be of interest to cardiologists, haematologists, respiratory physicians, anaesthetists, general practitioners, specialist nurses, researchers and trainees in the field.

It has been endorsed by the ESC Working Group in Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy and approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom for 6 category 1 (external) CPD credits.

The meeting aims to provide expert practical insight into recent advances in the management of heart failure, stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation and anticoagulation strategies in pulmonary embolism.

Expert clinicians and clinical-academics will deliver a balanced perspective on how the recently presented European Society of Cardiology guidelines may influence patient management.

The main objectives of the meeting include:

  • Provide independent, objective, evidence-based expert opinion on real life patient management in areas of major clinical importance
  • Discuss the practical application of the new ESC guidelines on heart failure management and stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation as well as guidelines for anticoagulation in pulmonary embolism
  • Create an interactive forum for faculty members and attendees to discuss –face to face- management issues in the following areas: heart failure, stroke prevention and pulmonary embolism
  • Gain insight into the safe and effective utilisation of established and newer pharmacological agents for treatment of heart failure, stroke prevention and pulmonary embolism

    The meeting will be interactive, include discussion in small groups and offer ample time for questions and answers sessions.
