Annual Meeting of the ESC Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy

10/06/2021 14:00 12/06/2021 16:00 Europe/Paris EuroCVP

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.

Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy


A condensed 3-day programme with all of the updates on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy

Reduction of cardiovascular disease burden by pharmacotherapy is a multistep approach, which requires:

  • the identification of new potential drugs;
  • testing new potential pharmacological compounds in trial setting;
  • regulatory approval;
  • implementation of therapies in clinical practice.

To achieve this, the aim of EuroCVP is to improve competency and confidence in:

  • Designing and planning successful clinical trials;
  • Evaluating and following the correct processes and regulatory procedures;
  • Effectively analysing and interpreting trial data by highly interactive workshops on statistics;
  • Improve competence and confidence to deliver better, personalized therapy of older people, which in turn will have a positive impact on implementing use of services and pharmacotherapy and thus patient outcomes.

In edition to this, the programme's main sessions will provide you with all of the most recent updates in the field, including a focus on pharmacotherapy and covid-19 (session 10), current challenges in pharmacogenomics (session 3), how to manage post-operative anti-thrombotic therapy after cardiovascular surgery (session 4)...


The meeting will take place over three days as follows:

  • 10 June from 12:00 - 19:00 (CET)
  • 11 June from 09:00 - 20:00 (CET)
