BJCA Focus: Prevention in the High Risk Coronary Patient

The 2018 BJCA Focus meeting will take place on Saturday 13th October at the ISH Venues: One Park Crescent.

These meetings focus on new areas of clinical research and areas of the cardiology curriculum where trainees find it difficult to access training. The meeting this year focuses on the ‘high risk’ coronary patient and will cover changes in the approach to prevention as well as discussing core current practice. UK trainees tend to find questions on prevention on the EEGC challenging, and there will be changes to clinical practice in the near future, so by the end of the meeting you will be fully informed and up to date in this field.

This meeting has been organised by the BJCA and is funded by Bayer. Bayer has no influence over the content or agenda of the meeting.

There are a limited number of places available which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. We therefore ask for a cheque of £100 to secure your place which will be returned to you upon your registered attendance at the meeting.
