BCS Annual Conference Affiliated Society Session: Tuesday 4th June 0830-1000 in Charter 1 on “Heart Valve Disease Management – A Digital Revolution”
Training day: 7th November 2019, London
Annual Meeting: 8th November 2019, London
We hold a training day and an annual conference once a year, along with other collaborative study days throughout the year (e.g. at the SCTS and BCS conferences, and with the British Society of Echocardiography).
Training days: These are concerned with basic aspects of valve disease, for example indications for surgery, management of endocarditis, or imaging. They are aimed at cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, cardiac nurses and physiologists, but also other groups appropriate to the subject, including specialists and trainees in acute medicine, elderly care, infection and general practitioners.
Clinical meetings: These address specific clinical problems and will aim to bring together many disciplines to shed new light on unanswered questions. For example, the clinical problem of early failure of biological replacement valves might include involvement from cardiologists, surgeons, manufacturers, histopathologists, and chemical pathologists. The outcome of these meetings might include a position statement, or a research protocol, as well as education.
