Your clinical case must be clear, educational, practical and real.
The purpose of a clinical case presentation is to communicate diagnostic reasoning in the light of the current ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines providing a clear description of the patient’s condition and further management options based on these guidelines.
Your case needs to be educational and not necessarily rare or unusual.
Coordinated by the Heart failure specialists Of Tomorrow (HOT), the sessions will open the discussion on clinical case management.
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 Awards session will benefit from:
Your case must be accepted at Heart Failure 2020 in the Clinical Case Awards sessionYou must be the presenter of your caseCases will be selected and assigned by the Scientific Programme Committee. Cases not selected for this session will be automatically considered for other oral presentation in the other Clinical Case sessions or poster presentation in the Clinical Case Corner
Two sessions showcase the most challenging cases submitted on the same topic.
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
Dr Ewa Jankowksa, coordinator of the programme was interviewed for Heart Failure 2016 Congress News: “These Clinical Cases are special”, she explains. “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. More information about congress resources
