This PACE snapshot meeting is an initiative of the PACE foundation as part of its mission, which includes the review, exchange and assimilation of important new data underlying cardiovascular disease & diabetes and accelerate this information into clinical practice.

The aim of this meeting is to provide expert physicians with a state of the art and comprehensive overview of different novel interventions in the future management of cardiovascular disease, and a platform for discussion, debate and exchange.

The session is designed in a format with multiple short introductions by leading experts, covering a broad field of innovations in cardiovascular risk factor management, such as hypertension, lipid management, ACS, atrial fibrillation, anticoagulation and diabetes, including time for discussion and debate.

Meeting objectives

  • To review and discuss new data and developments on the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and its relevance to treatment strategies and outcomes.
