Patients Day 7 October 2018 at The ICC, Birmingham, UK
You asked we listened!
We requested your feedback after Patients Day 2017. We’ve listened to what you have said and developed our agendas based on your suggestions.
The agendas include talks on:

Living with heart failure.
What treatment is available to me with CPVT.
Palpitations - When to seek medical attention or intervention.

CHADSVASc What does this mean to me?
What is the difference between AF and Atrial Flutter?
CBT - How can it help?

This year, STARS Patients Day will be divided into two and will have a dedicated PoTS room separate from the syncope and RAS room!

Nutrition and PoTS and Sleep disturbances in PoTS and what might help.

What are all these new wearable or portable devices, and why does it matter? & I have a new ECG recording device: now what?
