Prepare your submission

Your clinical case must be clear, educational, practical and real.

Your case needs to be educational and not necessarily rare or unusual.

Presentation format

Clinical Case Award

The best four cases are presented in this session. In 15 minutes, the finalists are asked to summarise their case and explain how they managed the patient.

Finalists of the Clinical Case Award session will benefit from:

  • Free registration for Heart Failure 2021
  • Prizes: First Prize Winner (€ 1000) and two Runners-Up (€ 250)


Your case must be accepted at Heart Failure 2021 in the Clinical Case Awards session.
You must be the presenter of your case.
Cases will be selected and assigned by the Scientific Programme Committee. Cases not selected for this session will be automatically considered for other presentation formats.

All accepted cases will be reviewed by the Education Committee who will select the best clinical cases to be featured on the ESC Clinical Case Gallery - Heart Failure.

Get inspired: cases from the past Heart Failure Congresses

Dr Ewa Jankowksa, coordinator of the programme explains: “These Clinical Cases are special”. “They are unique; often it concerns difficult cases which usually expand beyond the guidelines. Unexpected events and no standard treatment guarantee that this is exciting and very educational material.” 

Slides and videos are accessible to HFA Silver & Gold Members and Fellows of the HFA.
