OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The congress theme this year is: "Team Work for Excellence in Cardiovascular Care"
The scientific programme is focused around selected main topics and delivered through a mixture of session types, varying from general lectures to practical sessions to the latest news in the field. See the below list of session types, and familiarise yourself with the programme.
The congress gets started on the evening of the 18 May with the Inaugural Session and Networking Reception. This is an ideal time to meet up with the other delegates before the congress gets under way in earnest the following day.
In addition to the Scientific Programme, the workshops are a great added benefit.
All sessions last for 90 minutes and are held in the lecture rooms
Experts present state-of-the-art lectures on Nursing and Cardiovascular Care, as well as Guidelines and Recommendations from the perspective of daily/practical clinical activities. These sessions feature from 3 to 5 dedicated lectures presented by experts in their fields.
Educational sessions led by experienced practitioners.
A series of presentation tutorials tailored to give the audience specific guidance for Clinical Practice Guidelines Implementation and Research Development.
Allows for in-depth discussions on developments in the various fields of Cardiovascular Nursing and Care.
These sessions are constructed based on the original scientific contributions received during the call for abstracts and as selected by the programme committee.
Selected abstracts will be presented orally in a lecture room, in front of a dedicated audience. Two experts in the topics presented will co-chair the session, stimulate discussions and encourage interaction between the presenters and the audience on the findings presented.
Up to 8 abstracts presented in one session - the presenter will give the audience an overview, using few slides to highlight the research purpose, methods, results and conclusion. Then we will open the floor to questions and interaction! We invite all delegates to consult the abstract online ahead of time and come to interact in the session.
A reviewing committee will attend the sessions, listen to all presentations and grade in order to award prizes to the best research presented.
Best Oral Abstract Presentation Award Diploma for each winner and free admission for 2018's meeting for the overall winner.
What is a Clinical case learning session?
Best Clinical Cases submitted are retained for presentation in highly interactive and educational sessions.
Trainees and Young clinicians will present their cases and experts will be asked to moderate the sessions, facilitate interaction with the audience, prompt discussions, challenge the presenters and the audience.
The main objective of the session is to learn from challenging clinical case scenarios
A reviewing committee will attend the session, listen to all presentations and grade in order to award a prize to the best research presented.
Clinical Excellence Award Diploma, 2000 €uros and free admission for 2018's meeting for the winner.
Presented in a poster format in the poster area, these posters will be showcased during inter-session breaks. Two moderators will conduct the session and allow 5 minutes for each presenter to give an overview of the research. Posters are then available for further consultation by the audience during the duration of the poster session on Friday and during half-a-day on Saturday.The moderators will select the "Best Moderated Poster Presentation" at the end of each session.
Oral abstract presenters and moderated poster presenters must plan to attend the Closing Ceremony for Awards Announcements.
Research is presented as a Poster - on display for the whole day - to allow sufficient viewing time and interaction opportunities in this very dynamic and person to person format. The place to meet colleagues and peers and specifically address issues related to your daily practice/field of interest/research. The poster area is always given a central place in the congress centre to enhance the visibility of research presented.
Top Scores ! in recognition for all top scored research, you will find on a poster a sign indicating the poster is amongst the top scorer research presented at the congress!
