About this event

  • Date and time Wed 15 Sep 2021 from 9:00am to 4:30pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

This live stream version of the in-person meeting aims to provide an update on the latest Cardiology trials as well as offer a deep insight into the management of a complex cardiac condition that has been poorly understood. Cardiac Amyloid is under-diagnosed and under-treated, so this session will provide attendees with an understanding of how to recognise it and the new treatments available. The session will also provide an update on the rapidly growing field of Cardio-Oncology – a new branch of Cardiology that may provide Cardiology trainees new career opportunities. Designed for Cardiology trainees.

The session meets the curriculum requirements for Cardiology trainees at the ST3-7 level and will be of particular interest to trainees with an interest in Intervention, Electrophysiology, Heart Failure and Imaging. The session will be run by an experienced team of Consultant Cardiologists working across London.  

We hope you can join us in-person at the RSM for this event, tickets are available to purchase here.

This session aims to:

  • Know the latest trial data in Interventional Cardiology 
  • Know the latest trial data in heart failure 
  • Know the latest trial data in electrophysiology 
  • Describe the epidemiology of cardiac amyloid 
  • Be able to diagnose cardiac amyloid 
  • Describe the treatment of cardiac amyloid 
  • Know the cardiac complications of cancer treatment 
  • Describe the imaging techniques used to monitor cardiac status on cancer treatment 

This live stream is available for on-demand viewing. The live stream recording will be available for registered delegates up to 30 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
