ESC Endorsement Policy for live events in general cardiology - ESC Blueprint

The Scientific Programme will systematically be reviewed by the ESC Education Committee and must comply with the following ESC Blueprint:

  • Learning objectives and expected outcomes must be clearly defined. 
  • The programme must be based on recent ESC guidelines/ESC consensus documents. Case-based presentations are strongly encouraged.
  • It has to be interactive to better engage participants (via group discussions, breakout sessions, voting...)
  • It should align with identified needs and assess progression, an evaluation mechanism must be implemented (pre- & post-tests).
  • It should not harm ESC image
  • Feedback on the event is required. 
  • Local National Cardiac Societies should be informed of the event and be involved in it if possible.
