The very popular "Meet the Guidelines Task Force sessions", under the auspices of the ESC Committee for Practice Guidelines, are face to face interchanges between practitioners who will be using the Guidelines on a daily basis and the authors of the Guidelines.
An open discussion and an answer on what you would like to know about the new ESC Guidelines and their implementation.

This year participating countries are: Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and The Netherlands. These sessions are developed in collaboration with the ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines Task Force and Education department.
