  • December 16, 2014


The 2015 Course will build on the objective of exploring clinical challenges specific to Africa and forging solutions through a highly interactive process of sharing, learning, questioning, and challenging of the facilitators.

Ninety-minute sessions on both Thursday, March 26th and Friday, March, 27th have been dedicated for allied professionals, with the content to be confirmed in January, 2015. Allied professionals will benefit as well from the plenary sessions being held in the main arena for all delegates.

The highlights of the 2015 programme will be: STEMI – exploring solutions to problems defined in 2014; setting up a cathlab service in Africa and managing patients with resource limitations. There will be a focus on the local environment and particular circumstances of each African region.

An exciting session on high-risk patients will cover the ideal preparation for procedures with these patients and how to prevent and avoid complications. 

Atrial septal defect, left atrial appendage closure and left main intervention will be featured in the African context, and the complex issue of peri-procedural antithrombotic pharmacology will be distilled into a rational, practical approach.   

Parallel sessions will include an interactive case corner and exhibitors of allied drugs and medical equipment will be sponsoring industry supported sessions with supporting case studies. Interactive product demonstrations will also be held for delegates in the form of hands-on workshops.
