CMOD proudly supports the Global CardioVascular Clinical Trialists Forum (CVCT) on December 1-3, 2016 in Washington, DC. CVCT provides the best annual update and in-depth understanding of the trials shaping the evidence base of modern cardiology. At CVCT Forum, held at the French Embassy in Washington, DC, practitioners and young investigators learn the science of clinical trials from trial protocol design to trial result interpretation. In addition, they identify emerging important issues in CV medicine and opportunities for new trials. Further, participants explore the evidence from clinical trials and how results may be incorporated into treatment guidelines.
