Annual Scientific Meeting SCS
Dear friends and colleagues,
This will be an exciting year for the SCS 29th Annual Scientific Meeting! With the theme "Multidisciplinary Approach to Cardiovascular Care", we are putting together a comprehensive educational programme targeted at multiple levels of treatment for the cardiac patient.
We are extremely pleased to collaborate with the Endocrine and Metabolic Society of Singapore to run key sessions on dyslipidaemia management, focusing on guidelines-based and practical approaches. For the first time, we are hosting a prehospital cardiac care session with our colleagues from Emergency Medicine on cardiac arrest and AMI initiatives. Other highlights include sessions on tackling the heart failure pandemic, controversies in managing the high CV risk patient, and dealing with stroke in atrial fibrillation in Asians.
We are incorporating a full-day heart failure educational symposium jointly organised with the Heart Failure Service Improvement Workgroup, and a cardiac rehabilitation focus session. These programmes tailor to multidisciplinary teams including CV nursing and allied healthcare providers. Do also join our CV Researchers as they provide insights into their work on pushing the boundaries of translational research for patient benefit.
In the main dinner symposium, we will explore the management of the complex CAD patient using the "Heart Team" approach for revascularisation strategies, and discuss the optimal pharmacotherapy options for the unrevascularised patient. Also come and update your cardiovascular knowledge as you see our Cardiology trainees fight for the coveted C-Factor in the pre-congress dinner symposium!
Come and hear the best science from your colleagues in Singapore in the Young Investigator's Award Competition and Free Paper Sessions. We have the honour to listen to the SCS lecture to be delivered by Associate Professor Poh Kian Keong. We also congratulate Dr Wu Dar Ching who will be receiving the Singapore Cardiac Society Lifetime Achievement Award.
On behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to your participation in this meeting!
