The scientific programme, which is divided into two working days, aims to highlight the unmet needs in VTE and CVD clinical management in everyday practice. This issue will be discussed during the first working day of the plenary opening session, with literature to be published based on the session.
Unmet needs and literature news will be discussed during the following interactive sessions, which will be organised in small groups (breakout rooms).
Breakout room sessions will be organised with multiple choice testing and televoting, particularly focused on practical clinical management issues. The testing and televoting results will be the subject of a discussion within the breakout room sessions.
At the end of each working day, a summary of what was discussed during the breakout room discussions will be presented in plenary sessions for comment and to share among the delegates.
