    Every year the Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy organises EuroCVP Meeting to gather pharmacologists, pharmacists, research nurses and personnel, as well as general cardiologists with an interest in cardiovascular pharmacotherapy, pharmacology and heart failure.

    All cardiologists are concerned by pharmacology and drugs therapy, thus, they should all participate and contribute to EuroCVP.

    During the meeting, focus is made on key treatment breakthroughs, clinical applicability and significance of new drugs and new data. Since 2015, a Clinical Trials Workshop is held in conjunction to the main conference to give a focused view of the clinical trial arena, including trial methodology, trial challenges, trial interpretation and analysis, regulatory issues and good clinical practice.
