The 5th annual CORE meeting (16 and 17 June 2021) was hosted by Radcliffe Cardiology in collaboration with Optima Education and Abbott Vascular.
The meeting was led by Course Directors Prof Adrian Banning, Prof Evald Christiansen, Dr Jonathan Hill and Prof James Spratt and streamed from our London, Copenhagen, and Dublin hubs.
CORE 2021 focuses on contemporary standards of clinical practice, complex lesion and patient strategies and advanced diagnostic and treatment methods. The goal of CORE is to ensure procedural efficiencies while achieving durable patient outcomes, review patient care beyond intervention and discuss the best practices and innovation outside the catheterisation lab.
