During this unique broadcast, Radcliffe Medical Education brings together a globally-renowned European and American faculty to participate in a roundtable discussion. Radcliffe’s roundtable discussions are to provide both a reflection on the HF landscape following published data at congress and to examine what future developments can be expected at forthcoming events via lively discussion and data presentations.

Prof Andrew Coats (University of Warwick, UK) leads proceedings, and is joined by Dr Shelley Zieroth (University of Manitoba, CA), Dr Javed Butler (University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, MS) and Dr Piotr Ponikowski (Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, PL) for an insightful presentation and a discussion.
