Summary

The Heart Failure Association (HFA) is pleased to announce the upcoming HFA Clinical Trials in Heart Failure course taking place from 1 to 3 October 2021. This face-to-face course, bringing faculty and participants together, will provide a valuable exchange.

In the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the HFA is offering this course in both online and in-person formats.  We are committed to offering continuing medical education during these challenging times.



The HFA believes that through this course, novel and promising concepts for the understanding and treatment of heart failure can be developed at the crossroads of experienced experts, trialists, and young clinicians. 

Young clinicians in particular will benefit from the unique atmosphere, hearing new ideas and mentoring - this course will give your clinical science career a real boost!

The event is an opportunity for intellectual interaction regarding the heart failure landscape between key opinion leaders, principal investigators in major clinical trials, and young clinicians or future heart failure specialists. Participants are expected to attend the entire meeting.

Important information: to attend the in-person event, please note that the Health Pass is required and that it is mandatory to wear a mask. Please visit the Italian Government information page for further information.
