EUROTHROMBOSIS 2016

29 SEPTEMBER - 1 OCTOBER, 2016, LONDON UK

From research to better care:

Find out what's behind the ESC guidelines and what the future holds!

Eurothrombosis is the annual scientific meeting of the Working Group on Thrombosis of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Eurothrombosis 2016 will be held in London and will focus on the translational research and clinical evidence underlying current ESC guidelines and what the future holds.

The congress chairperson is Prof Robert Storey, University of Sheffield, who will lead an internationally renowned faculty of experts in the field. Lectures and symposia will cover translational research, state-of-the-art perspectives, ESC guideline recommendations, and controversies in the areas of atherothrombosis, atrial fibrillation, cardiac thromboembolism, interventional cardiology and venous thromboembolism.

The ESC Working Group on Thrombosis consists of clinical cardiologists and both basic scientists and clinicians working in the fields of thrombosis and haemostasis. Eurothrombosis brings these groups together to provide a dynamic interaction between disciplines that drives the research agenda and identifies and delivers solutions in the management and prevention of thrombosis.

We are also pleased to invite younger clinicians and scientists to submit abstracts for oral presentations and poster sessions, as well as ‘difficult cases’  for highlighting controversial topics and management challenges. For further details please see the Abstracts tab.

We look forward to welcoming you in London.

All about clinical trials workshop:

In  parallel to the main Eurothrombosis sessions, we invite you to attend to the teaching workshop proposed by the Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy. This teaching programme, called “All About Clinical Trials Workshop,” is built to improve the professional knowledge and skills required to plan and deliver successful cardiovascular pharmacotherapy clinical trials.

The aim of these workshops is to understand the methodological issues of design and how to conduct and interpret clinical trials. The workshops also demonstrate how to critically evaluate a scientific manuscript and interpret clinical trial results using examples of clinical trials presented at the latest cardiovascular scientific meetings. Finally, it provides a review of the fundamentals of Good Clinical Practice (GCP).

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for the design, conduct, and recording and reporting of clinical trials that involve the participation of human subjects. Anyone managing or conducting research in the National Health Service should be aware of Good Clinical Practice and evidence of GCP training is mandatory for gaining Host Site Approval for a Clinical Trial of an Investigational Medicinal Product (CTIMP).
The course provides a review of the fundamentals of Good Clinical Practice, for experienced staff. The training is based on the International Conference on Harmonisation GCP guidelines but also introduces The Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations and Amendment Regulations 2006, which have transposed the EU Clinical Trials Directive. The course gives an overview of aspects applicable to all research. The GCP course is delivered by a certifying provider, so each participant is certified on GCP after the course. This clinical trials workshop is sponsored by Daiichi Sankyo

Attendees to the Eurothrombosis 2016 will be able to attend the “All About Clinical Trials Workshop” at no extra cost, provided they select to attend the session upon registering. Please note that places are limited. If you would like to register for the “All About Clinical Trials Workshop” only, please use the same registration system (button below) and select the appropriate session options when registering.
