Clinical Case Sessions
Presenting your clinical case during ESC Congress 2022 will allow you to give your work a worldwide long-term exposure and multinational connections with all subspeciality professionals.
Clinical cases will be presented in highly interactive and educational sessions featured in dedicated rooms.
Clinicians will present their cases to two experts in the topic who will moderate the session, facilitate interaction with the audience, prompt discussions, challenge the presenters and the audience.
In addition, to the on-site presentation in Barcelona, case presenters are required beforehand to upload their slide presentations by 1 August.
Uploaded case presentations will be organised by topic and featured on the online congress platform during the event and 2 weeks after. Case presenters will be able to discuss their findings with peers. This platform will allow continued discussions during the event, with interaction functionalities such as rating of the presentation, number of views and comments. Case presenters will be able to participate and follow the conversation on their clinical case(s) throughout the event.
Case presentations will then be featured on ESC 365 - the cardiology knowledge hub, with 110,000 users and 4.1 million online views.
More information on the presentation formats will be sent to the presenters whose case has been accepted after the results announcement.
