Joining the Hot community ensures you some special benefits
Importantly, the HFA has special reduced membership fees forHoT members. For a reduced fee, you have access to the HFA Online Education modules, the online version of the European Journal of Heart Failure and access to HF congress slides and educational material.
Becoming a HoT member is a great way for nurses to network with other disciplines and stay up-to-date with novel advances in heart failure.
To date, we have supported nurses to develop local heart failure education projects, promoted funding opportunities for nursing research and initiated collaborations between nurses in Europe and the UK to support clinical development.
The HoT initiative has received a lot of interest from nurses nationally and internationally. Join HoT today and help us to raise the international profile of Heart Failure nursing.
The HoT initiative gathers young people (undergraduate or PhD students, postdocs aged 40 and under) from different disciplines (medicine, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, biophysics, biomedical engineering, etc.), who are involved in research projects in the field of heart failure.
HoT network will help you to:
HoT organizes interesting translational research sessions at the annual Heart Failure congressess The annual HFA Winter Meetings on Translational Heart Failure Research provide you with an excellent forum for getting insights into state-of-the art basic science knowledge in the field of heart failure.The HoT initiative has already established a co-operation with the Scientists of Tomorrow (SoT), the initiative of the Basic Research Council of ESC.
Follow us on Facebook. The Heart Failure Specialists of Tomorrow Facebook group is now online and open for HoT members. Become a HoT member to join our Facebook group and stay up to date on events, grants, webinars, and many other opportunities specifically designed for the young HoT community.
HoT national representatives are responsible for both establishing and promoting the HoT initiative in their country, and serving as a link between the HoT members in their country and the HoT nucleus. So far 38 national HoT groups have been officially founded with the support of national cardiac societies/heart failure working groups.
Go to the HoT national representative list , find the contact information for your country and the national HoT webpage link. If your country does not have one yet, please contact us and we will contact you when one is founded.
