Events

This meeting will be held on Wednesday 27 March
2019 at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Glasgow. The programme and
registration form for the meeting are available here and registration is open.

The programme has been designed by Mrs Cary Barton, Mrs Louise Clayton and Mrs
Jayne Masters. The day aims to provide evidence-based knowledge from leading UK
specialists in heart failure management and in-depth discussion around
particularly challenging and controversial management issues facing nurses and
other healthcare professionals caring for patients with heart failure. It is
designed to educate and interest heart failure nurses, and will be of interest
to nurses, both early in their role and those with more experience, as well as
other healthcare professionals. We are expecting around 130 delegates and 6
exhibiting companies to attend.

Once again, there are a limited number of travel grants available, on a first-come,
first-served basis. Please see the criteria for awards of travel grants on the
‘Information’ page within the programme.

We will again be offering an opportunity for delegates to display posters about
their heart failure service or heart failure-related work. For example, the
poster could focus on how you have developed an aspect of your service, how
your service works (including what works well/lessons learned) or the sharing
of best practice. The aim of this poster forum is to share ideas, inform and
help peers, encourage networking and motivate others.

The deadline for submission of poster presentation abstracts is Monday 4 March
2019. Details of how to submit are included in the programme and registration
form.

This meeting will be held on Tuesday 26 March

registration form for the meeting are available here and registration is open.

This programme has been designed by Dr John Baxter, Dr Jane Cannon, Dr Peter
Cowburn and Professor Roy Gardner to meet the educational needs of the heart
failure component of the core curriculum in cardiovascular medicine, as well as
the needs for advanced training in heart failure and revalidation. It will
provide an in-depth discussion around particularly challenging and often
controversial management issues that will be relevant to consultants and
trainees in cardiology, internal medicine, care of the elderly specialists,
nurses and GPs with a special interest in heart failure. The day has been structured
to provide a balance of carefully selected talks and interactive case-based
sessions. We are expecting around 120 delegates and 6 exhibiting companies to
attend.

There are a limited number of travel grants available, on a first-come,
first-served basis, for this meeting. Please see the criteria for awards of
