Clinical cases will be presented in highly interactive and educational sessions.
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.
Case presenters are required 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.
