August 2018 post

The summer holiday season is in full swing and I hope yours is going well.

Science and medicine never entirely stop, however, and many of us will spend at least a little time in the coming weeks devising our schedules for the 2018 congress of the European Society of Cardiology, which convenes this year in Munich, Germany from Saturday 25 August to Wednesday 29 August.

In amongst the main schedule of the congress is a series of very attractive symposia supported by Orion Pharma that I take this opportunity to draw to your attention.

You can get full particulars of the programme here. The aspects that draw my particular attention are:

(1) this is a lecture series with an unashamedly practical emphasis that addresses the major questions in the management of patients with acute or advanced heart failure

(2) this advice is offered by a faculty every member of which is an acknowledged and respected practitioner in this area of cardiology whose experience in these often difficult cases has been acquired at the bedside and at first-hand. They know what they are talking about.

So, if you are planning to attend ESC 2018 block out some time in your congress programme book or your congress programme app and come to some of these tutorials: they’re concise, they’re lively and they’re packed with information. The whole programme repeats from Sunday to Tuesday, so there’s ample opportunity for you to fit in the whole series, plus there’s a promise of light refreshments that may be especially welcome if Europe’s summer heat-wave lasts to the end of August!
