Cardiology CME Conferences Description
WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES CVCT MEETINGS UNIQUE
CVCT participants are carefully selected global EXPERTS of the highest possible calibre. They are investigators and trial experts, industry R&D experts, regulatory and health technology experts, health care professional and health insurance experts, major media and medical journal experts, patient advocacy groups experts… It is this mix of expertise from various backgrounds, which makes CVCT meetings unique. A sort of think tank, more willing to brainstorm and shift the lines than simply lecturing. CVCT meetings open up a number of engaging and interactive options, taking our participants on an expedition, in order to make each session more productive and more effective. We use a number of engagement options to ensure active audience participation, finding their most urgent challenges to talk about such as having them prepare questions and using the CVCT App polling them. Ample time in each session is allocated to inspiring and energizing moderated multi-stakeholder expert panel debates (“The Forum”). Moderators interview the experts and engage participants to directly interview and challenge the experts, with the moderator streamlining this process. The moderators are encouraged to structure the discussion and split the timeslot into a few clear chapters. In addition to its classical features, CVCT Forum 2018 will be experimenting with another new variation to this theme: Focused CVCT Workshops. Organized as campfire-sessions, fit for smaller groups: The expert and the participants sit in a small U shape-table, as equals. The experts are allowed very brief openings, but then it is over to the participants, with the hope that intimacy allows participants to feel freer to talk to the expert and to each other. Experts are encouraged to share their stories and case studies from real clinical trials, leaving it up to the audience to translate their learnings to their own daily reality, and to bring in more of their own cases. Experts are not only staying on stage, the real expertise is in the room and during breakouts, mingling and networking among the participants. All experts are kindly invited to stay for the full Forum, free to engage in all sessions.
