Overview

Our regular review series View from the Thoraxcenter hosted by Prof Nicolas Van Mieghem and Dr Joost Daemen (Thoraxcentre, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, NL) provided a concise analysis of the late-breaking science results.

 

For a deeper dive into key randomized clinical trial data, Dr Harriette Van Spall (McMaster University, Hamilton, CA) interviewed principal investigators on their studies, learnings, and applicability to clinical practice in her regular Late-Breaker Discussion Series.

 

Short, accessible Expert Interviews were conducted with select faculty focusing on the results, applicability, and impact on future research.

 

The ACC. 21 Edition of Masterclass video highlighted the results of the ACC Survey on the hostile work environment.
