Summary

The European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy is proud to be delivering an engaging and interactive 2 day course to improve the professional knowledge and skills required to plan and deliver successful cardiovascular pharmacotherapy clinical trials. 

Focus on

  • Methodological issues regarding the design, conduct and interpretation of clinical trials
  • New types and trends of trials required by regulators

At the end of the course delegates will have improved their knowledge in:

  • Designing and planning successful clinical trials
  • Evaluating and following the correct processes and regulatory procedures
  • Effectively analysing and interpreting trial data using clinical trials presented at the latest cardiovascular scientific meetings as examples

This course is aimed at improving knowledge and skills related to clinical trial planning and design as well as the successful running of different types of clinical trials.

The Working Group offers highly interactive sessions coordinated by top experts in their fields. In addition, the course offers interactive workshops on Good Clinical Practice (GCP certificate included), statistics, trial data interpretation and manuscript writing.

Our goal is for all participants to leave the meeting with the improved competence and confidence to deliver better clinical trials which in turn will have a positive impact on services and patient outcomes.

This course is also an excellent opportunity for education, networking and creating opportunities.
