The comprehensive and exciting scientific programme will incorporate topics that will be beneficial to a wide ranging audience including specialists, general practitioners, clinical scientists, nurses, pharmacists, and dieticians involved in the treatment and management of cardiovascular disease. This Congress will continue in the successful tradition of our previous two joint Congress, whilst showcasing the latest developments in hypertension and stroke management and research in South Africa and internationally.
The meeting will cover the most important issues in the field of hypertension, stroke and cardiovascular related diseases, and several world-renowned experts will be invited to share their remarkable achievements and findings in a comprehensive range of topics. The Congress will further include debates on various topical issues such as: ‘Legislation on salt’, ‘Is ambulatory BP needed?’, ‘Cerebral reperfusion: who and when?’, as well as Masterclasses on Hypertension for Nurses, Pharmacists and Dieticians.
