SHARP has been working to prevent vascular disease in Scotland for the last 30 years. Please join us at Crieff Hydro Hotel on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd November 2018 for our 30th Anniversary meeting. The meeting will review our past success in preventing vascular disease, what we are doing at present and the challenges for the future.
Delegates to the SHARP meeting are invited to join the Scottish Lipid Forum at their annual meeting on the Thursday morning. After lunch the SHARP meeting will commence with a keynote speaker followed by the sponsored symposium on the ‘Use of Thrombotic Drugs’. The Founder’s dinner on the Thursday evening promises to be a truly memorable occasion.
The Scientific programme which continues on the Friday will address the needs of patients with heart disease and stroke, the affordability of new drugs as well as the specific problems of practising in Scotland. Interactive workshops will look at the work of TIA, heart failure, vascular disease and hypertension clinics as well as screening for cardiomyopathy.
After the presentation of the SHARP prizes the meeting will conclude with the Keynote Lecture on ‘30 SHARP Years’ delivered by Professor Sir Lewis Ritchie , one of our founding members.
World leading experts in the field of cardiovascular CT from around the globe will discuss the current state of cardiovascular CT and the role it will play in 2019. Topics will include broadening clinical application, updates on technical optimization and discussion of current and future innovation and research in this rapidly evolving field.
SCCT Winter|2019: Dublin will explore all aspects of cardiovascular CT, including debates on areas of contention, with the aim of informing and educating participants on cardiovascular CT’s strengths, weaknesses, and increasing clinical indications.
The objectives of this meeting are:
- To understand current best practices in cardiovascular CT in coronary artery disease, structural and congenital heart disease, electrophysiology and heart muscle and valve disease assessment.
- To be able to analyse whether cardiovascular CT is the most appropriate test to investigate cardiovascular pathology and be able to communicate the strengths and weaknesses of the technique compared with alternative imaging modalities.
- To be aware of current research applications of cardiovascular CT that may impact on future clinical assessment.
The Heart Failure Hub invites you to attend the event taking place at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh on Wednesday 30th January 2019.
The Hub is a part of the National Advisory Committee for Heart Disease looking at key areas of heart failure management. Our annual event attracts over 150 delegates and assists the Heart Failure Hub to share best practice, increase knowledge and skills whilst formulating future plans for Heart Failure care in Scotland.
More information about the event will be released soon.
This half day course aimed at senior clinicians, responsible officers, clinical directors, medical directors and clinical leads, focuses on managing doctors in difficulty and difficult doctors.
Through national updates, case studies and in depth interactive sessions, this course will support you to identify concerns early, diagnose the issues and ensure effective intervention and support doctors who are experiencing difficulty or demonstrating difficult behaviours.
By the end of the workshop, attendees will be able to:
- Describe the requirements of the GMC in identifying and managing trainees with difficulties.
- Identify those features which may indicate a trainee with difficulties.
- Describe the possible barriers to intervention.
- Follow formal processes and procedures required when managing trainees with difficulties.
- Address trainee issues and problems more confidently.
Our 2019 event will be held at the Dunblane Hydro Hotel. More information about registering and the programme will be released in due course.
