The Arrhythmia Alliance’s 2021 Heart Rhythm Congress (A-A HRC 2021 3–6 October, virtual) returns for its second ever digital edition, which will see more than 250 world heart rhythm specialists deliver more than 200 hours of educational content.
In recognition that excellent patient care is the result of a multidisciplinary team working closely together, A-A HRC2021 has sessions for all healthcare professionals—including electrophysiologists, cardiologists, GPs, nurses, and pharmacists.
HRC Programme Director Shouvik Haldar (London, UK), says: “Having sessions for all healthcare professionals is important for the simple reason that we work as a very cohesive team to care for our patients. Education, therefore, must focus on meeting the needs for the whole team, otherwise we will not be able to carry out our roles to the highest standard for our patients.”
A world-renowned faculty, which includes A-A president John Camm (London, UK) and HRS immediate past president Christine Albert (Los Angeles, USA), has produced an agenda that is topical and inspirational, the Alliance says in a press release.
The virtual congress will provide both LIVE and on-demand content, with all presentations being available for at least 12 months from the bespoke A-A virtual conference centre. Sessions include:
- NEW for 2021: A-A HRC2021 Named Lectures Series, featuring talks from John Camm (London, UK), Hugh Calkins (Baltimore, USA), Harry Crijns (Maastricht, The Netherlands), and Ben Freedman (Syndey, Australia).
- The Adam Fitzpatrick Plenary Session—broadcast LIVE on 4th October at 5.30pm BST—with an international panel of speakers, including Vivek Reddy (New York, USA) and Paulus Kirchhof (Hamburg, Germany).
- Joint sessions between Arrhythmia Alliance and leading cardiology societies: British Heart Rhythm Society (BHRS, UK), Heart Rhythm Society (HRS, USA), and the Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (PCCS, UK).
- LIVE and interactive courses, such as the EP Traces Course, providing excellent opportunities to test skills and learn from peers.
