Organised with scientific co-chairs Stefan Anker and Andrew Coats, this event includes presentations and panel discussions with a host of international thought-leaders. 

 

The SGLT2 Updates 2021 conference SGLT2 Inhibition in Cardiorenal Disease: Translating Evidence into Clinical Practice covers the place of SGLT2 inhibitors in the newly released guidelines of the Heart Failure Association (HFA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) as well as their implementation in clinical practice.

 

In addition to plenary sessions and satellite symposia the conference featured a number of Meet The Expert breakout sessions discussing the implications in treatment of specific patient subgroups including patients with comorbidities.  Audience questions were submitted throughout and were addressed by the panel experts.
