Coordinated by the Heart failure specialists Of Tomorrow (HOT), the sessions will open the discussion on clinical case management:

  • Clinical Case Competition: the best four cases are presented in this session in the Agora. The five finalists are offered a free registration to have the chance to compete: in 22 minutes, they are asked to summarise their case and explain how they managed the patient.
  • Clinical Case sessions: also held in the Agora, these sessions showcase the most challenging cases submitted around the same topic. 
  • Clinical Case Corner: selected presenters will display their cases in this dedicated zone of the Poster Area and defend their case in front of their moderator and the audience during the coffee breaks.

Accepted cases will be published in the abstract supplement of the European Journal of Heart Failure
