The European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy is proud to be delivering an engaging and interactive 2-day course to improve the professional knowledge and skills required to plan and deliver successful cardiovascular pharmacotherapy clinical trials.
Our goal is for all participants to leave the meeting with the improved competence and confidence to deliver better clinical trials which in turn will have a positive impact on services and patient outcomes.
This course is aimed at improving knowledge and skills related to clinical trial planning and design as well as the successful running of different types of clinical trials. We will offer interactive sessions coordinated by top experts in their fields. In addition, the course will offer highly interactive workshops on Good Clinical Practice (GCP certificate included), statistics, trial data interpretation and manuscript writing.
At the end of the course delegates will have improved their knowledge in:
This course will be an excellent opportunity for education, networking and creating opportunities.
