5th Global Cardiovascular Clinical Trialists (CVCT) Forum

Add to calendar25/09/20080:00 27/09/20080:00 Europe/Paris 5th Global Cardiovascular Clinical Trialists (CVCT) Forum true DD/MM/YYYY



Organised in collaboration with the European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Drug Therapy, the Global CVCT Forum is a meeting specifically and totally dedicated to the discussion of clinical trials in cardiovascular disease.

The Global CVCT Forum is attended by experts principally engaged in cardiovascular clinical trials.  Participants are among the group of major international thought leaders and come from various primary job functions in primary care, pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical regulatory bodies, and publishing houses from around the world (US, Canada, Asia, Europe, and Japan).

Outstanding faculty members are committed to producing relevant data from controlled  clinical trials that contribute to better clinical care and discussing issues relevant to dentifying relevant information, how to do better clinical trials, how to satisfy regulatory authorities and, most importantly,how to improve cardiovascular health care.

CVCT meetings are primarily oriented toward discussion among persons as opposed to ecturing to a broad audience. Thought process counts, communication is the important agenda, as opposed to dictating doctrine. The format of the meeting is set to fulfil these aims. Beyond plenary sessions the meeting is structured with a variety of small nteractive brainstorming workshops, expert discussion, how-to-sessions and consensus building workshops.

The discussion takes place with a selected audience of opinion leaders, clinical trialists, pharmaceutical industry partners, regulators, investigators and cardiologists.

The Global CVCT Forum aims to:

  • Familiarise practitioners and young investigators with the science of clinical trials from trial protocol design to trial result interpretation
  • Examine the background of knowledge which led to the design of major trials
  • Identify and understand best evidence from clinical trials
  • Examine the consequences of trial results on the updating of guidelines
  • Consider the consequences and relative weight of Evidence based vs Mechanism based and Marketing based medicine
  • Identify emerging important issues in cardiovascular medicine
  • Examine opportunities and needs for new trials

We do hope that you will share with us the excitement of this unique learning experience and we are very happy to welcoming you in Cannes.
