Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Round Table 1 - Referral Pathways in Europe

To mark the launch of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review, RadcliffeCardiology.com in association with the European Heart Rhythm Association and doctors.net.uk, presents the first in a series of nine video shorts from the Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Round Table.

The Round Table videos comprise salient discussion and practical support for professionals concerned with the treatment of arrhythmias in Europe.

In this first video, the Round Table discusses the challenges of creating efficient referral pathways between general practitioners, general cardiologists and electrophysiologists, and draws on first-hand country experiences of those in attendance.

The Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Round Table event and videos were supported by an unrestricted grant from Biosense Webster. The view and opinions expressed are those of the attendees, and not necessarily of Biosense Webster.
